"As of 13 February 2023, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) had recorded 18,955 civilian casualties since the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. This consisted of 7,199 killed and 11,756 injured. 697 civilian casualties occurred in January 2023," the UK Ministry of Defense Intelligence Service said on Twitter.

"The OHCHR has stated it believes that the actual figures are considerably higher. Based on other independent analyses, over 16,000 civilians have likely been killed.

Data from January 2023 indicated that the violence continued along the 1,200km front line but was primarily concentrated in Donetsk, Luhansk, and Zaporizhzhia oblasts.

Throughout January 2023, there was a very high intensity and worsening trend of damage being inflicted on both medical and educational facilities.

These incidents and continued civilian casualties are likely largely due to Russia’s lack of discrimination in the use of artillery and other area weapon systems," the post reads.
