The UN confirmed at least 64 killed civilians in the war in Ukraine since Thursday, when Russia invaded the country.

The figures include the developments until late Saturday night and are based on strict confirmation procedures and methodology, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) stated on Sunday.

The real numbers are assumed to be significantly higher, as many reports of victims have not yet been confirmed, the OCHA pointed out.

The UN Relief and Works Agency also says that damage to civilian infrastructure has led to hundreds of thousands of people in Ukraine losing access to electricity or water. This causes “humanitarian situations” in Ukraine, mostly in the north, east, and south of the country, according to the OCHA.

The previous count from OCHA was presented on Friday morning and showed at least 127 civilian victims, among them 25 killed and 102 wounded, mostly due to shelling and airstrikes.
