Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion in February last year, residential areas and critical infrastructure in Ukraine have come under frequent attack.

As of March 20, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has recorded 22,209 civilian casualties in Ukraine, including 8,317 killed and 13,892 injured. However, the actual number of casualties could be significantly higher.
