More than 50% of the total housing stock in Mariupol, Kharkiv, Chernigov, Bucha, Severodonetsk, and Lysichansk has been damaged or destroyed. The number of Ukrainians left homeless already exceeds 3.5 million people, or 8% of the country's population.



This report by the Center for Counteracting Disinformation under the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.

Contrary to Putin's statements that "the Russian army does not strike at any civilian targets," during the five months of the war, Russia attacked civilian targets 60 times more often than military ones. In figures, this is 17.3 thousand strikes on civilian objects. And about 300 for the military, the report says.

First, the Russians hit the civilian infrastructure of the cities along the front line.

According to the center, one of the reasons for the arrivals at civilian targets is the low accuracy of Russian weapons and the use of outdated or false data.

More than 50% of the total housing stock in Mariupol, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Bucha, Severodonetsk, and Lysichansk has been damaged or destroyed. The number of Ukrainians left homeless already exceeds 3.5 million people, or 8% of the country's population, the Center for Combating Disinformation adds.
