210 civilians killed: Ukraine Official

Kyiv: Ukrainian government ombudsman Lyudmyla Denysova stated on Sunday that 210 civilians were killed and 1,100 others injured in war against Russia.

“With unseen cruelty, the enemy is destroying residential buildings, hospitals, kindergartens and schools, taking away the right to live from the sons and daughters of Ukrainian land, including children,” she said in a social media post.

Denysova gave examples of some of the civilian deaths, including a child killed in the shelling of a hospital in Kyiv, and a woman killed after a missile hit a residential building in Kharkiv.

She asserted that Russia should be “punished severely for these crimes”, BBC reported. “Ukraine is noting down all these facts and will pass them on to the military tribunal in The Hague,” she added.

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Deputy Defence Minister Hanna Malyar said that 4,300 Russian have died so far. Ukraine estimated that 26 helicopters, 146 tanks, 706 armoured fighting vehicles, 49 cannons, one buk air defence system, four Grad multiple rocket launch systems, 30 vehicles, 60 tankers, two drones and two boats, the numbers were preliminary and liable to change, BBC added. (UNI)
