News Desk: The United Nations says at least 137 people, including 13 children, have been killed in Ukraine since the Russian invasion began.
Fighting between the two sides erupted on Wednesday, the seventh day since Russia launched its offensive in Ukraine last Thursday.
The United Nations says about 400 people have been injured in the fighting so far.
But UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Liz Thrissell said the actual number of casualties was likely to be much higher.
He said most of the casualties were caused by artillery shelling, airstrikes, and other large-scale explosions.
However, the number of casualties reported by the Ukrainian government is much higher. According to them, 352 civilians have been killed and 164 injured so far.
Ukraine’s military says Russian student forces have launched an offensive in the besieged second-largest city of Kharkiv on Wednesday.
