Ukraine Unrest: According to Ukraine’s interior minister, Russian security forces have killed more than 350 civilians since the invasion of the country.
Since Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine last week, the country has been in turmoil, drawing international condemnation.
Moscow demands that Kyiv’s military surrender and that the country agree to become a “neutral” zone, all of which are largely regarded as unacceptable by Ukraine.
According to Ukraine’s Interior Ministry, over 350 Ukrainian civilians, including 14 children, have been killed as a result of Russia’s military campaign.
A total of 1,684 people have been injured, including 116 children in the Ukraine unrest, according to the report.
There was no mention of casualties among Ukraine’s military personnel in the ministry’s statement.
Russia claims that its troops are solely attacking Ukrainian military facilities, and that the civilian population of Ukraine is unaffected.
Russia has not disclosed any information about soldier casualties on their side.
On Sunday, however, the Russian Defense Ministry admitted that Russian soldiers had been killed or wounded, but did not provide any figures.
Meanwhile, a Downing Street official said Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the next 24 hours are critical for Ukraine.
According to the official, Johnson stated that the UK and its partners will do everything possible to ensure that defensive supplies reached Ukraine.
