T4P’s database of war crimes: Statistical information

Our database represents one of the largest concentrations of information about the war in Ukraine. It records probable war crimes (incidents) that we have been able to document. The information contained in the database makes no claim to be complete and final. The true total for certain war crimes is, almost certainly, significantly higher than those we have been able to document.
