The National Police has identified nearly 14,000 citizens who have been killed as a result of Russia’s war against Ukraine, according to acting National Police Head Ivan Vyhivskyi.

Vyhivskyi spoke about the efforts of Ukrainian police officers to document and investigate war crimes, as well as their cooperation with defense forces to liberate Ukrainian territories.

In his statement, Vyhivskyi also noted that more than 3,000 bodies remain unidentified. He reiterated the National Police staff’s commitment to identifying every individual with the assistance of forensic DNA analysis.

On April 22, 500 bodies of missing Ukrainian soldiers were recovered.

According to Oleh Kotenko, Ukraine’s commissioner for missing persons, about 60-65 percent of missing persons are in captivity, making identifying dead bodies especially important.

“Thousands of lost lives, the deaths of entire families, killed and maimed children – this is the ultra-high price that Ukraine pays every day for its independence and European choice,” said Vyhivskyi.
