Yesterday, 28 February, it was reported that at least five people had been killed in Russian attacks on the Kharkiv and Kherson regions.

According to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), at least 8,101 Ukrainian civilians have been killed since the start of the Russian invasion, while at least 13,479 have been injured.
