More than 1,000 civilians have been killed since President Vladimir Putin announced what he called a “special military operation” on 24 February.

Russian forces have continuously shelled key cities including Kharkiv, Mariupol and Kyiv, and have targeted civilian infrastructure including hospitals, schools and apartment buildings.
