At least 352 civilian casualties in Ukraine, Ministry of Interior says
The Russian military's invasion of Ukraine has caused at least 352 civilian casualties, including 14 children, Ukraine's Ministry of Interior announced Sunday.
Worth noting: Another 1,684 people, including 116 children, have been injured in the ongoing conflict, the Ministry added.
Yes, but: The "real figures are considerably higher" as officials assessing the situation have yet to confirm other reports, the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs warned Saturday, per AP.
The big picture: The U.N. agency also said damage to civilian infrastructure has left "hundreds of thousands of people" without electricity or water access, mainly in northern, eastern and southern Ukraine.
- Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday called Russian officials' claim that its military didn't target civilians "a lie."
