According to UN Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo, more than 9,200 people have been killed in the conflict in Ukraine.

According to her, over 500 days since the beginning of Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine, 9,287 civilians, including 537 children, have been killed. Another 16,384 people, among them 1,117 kids, have suffered wounds. “These are only confirmed figures. The actual number of victims is likely considerably higher,” DiCarlo noted.

“Currently, more than 6.3 million Ukrainians are refugees, and an estimated 5.1 million people are internally displaced,” she added.

Meanwhile, the Kremlin said that Russia has stopped participating in a contract that permitted grain to be shipped from war-torn Ukraine through the Black Sea to areas of the world experiencing hunger. This has a negative impact on global food security.

In addition, an explosion that took out Russia’s bridge to Crimea in what Moscow said was an attack by Ukrainian maritime drones, killing two persons.

The bridge over the road provides a crucial route for Russian forces fighting in Ukraine.

Moscow said there was no connection between the attack and its decision to halt the grain accord due to what it described as a failure to implement a parallel agreement loosening regulations for its food and fertilizer exports.

Under the terms of the agreement, Ukraine has sold more than 32 million metric tons of corn, wheat and other commodities, with the final ship departing Ukraine on Sunday.
