As Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine, the stories and photos of those killed have started to show the human toll taken by war.  

Ukraine’s interior minister reported 352 civilians dead and over 1,600 injured this past Sunday, a mere four days after the invasion began.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Liz Throssell said they’ve only been able to ‘cross-check’ 136 dead, including 13 children, but acknowledged the toll ‘is likely to be much higher.’  

Throssell added that another 400 people – including 26 children – have been wounded from the fighting.    

10-year-old Polina was put on display as one of the first victims of the invasion. She and her parents were shot dead by a Russian sabotage and reconnaissance group which opened fire on their family car, Kyiv’s deputy mayor Volodymyr Bondarenko said.

She blames the use of explosives with wide impact areas and shellings from heavy artillery for much of the death, as well as multiple launch rocket systems and airstrikes.

Six-year-old Sofia, the daughter of police officer Oleg Fedko, was killed along with her mother and weeks-old brother as they attempted to escape.

Reports are starting to surface identifying some of those killed as the invasion heads into its second week.
