More than 2,000 civilians have died in Kharkiv Oblast since the start of the full-scale war. The number does not include the currently occupied territories of Kharkiv Oblast.

Since Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine began, at least 2,038 civilians have died in Kharkiv Oblast, including 77 children. Oleh Syniehubov, the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration (RMA) head, reported this in an interview with Ukrinform.

“As of the beginning of July, 2,038 civilians were killed in Kharkiv Oblast, 77 of them were children. Almost 3,000 people were injured, including 240 children,” the message reads.

Also, according to the head of the RMA, 29 settlements in the Kupiansk district and a 5-10 kilometer zone in the northern direction, where the Ukrainian side does not have access, remain under occupation. Therefore, the death toll may be higher.

Moreover, RMA has information about the mass burials of Ukrainian civilians and military personnel in the occupied territories.

“Probably not as big as in Izium, but still, they are there. We have approximate information about their locations in the north,” said Syniehubov.
