The number of killed civilians represents a 31 per cent increase compared to April 2024.

According to the HRMMU, the increase in civilian casualties was mainly due to attacks in Kharkiv region since 10 May related to a ground offensive launched by Russian armed forces from the Russian Federation into the Kharkiv region. Attacks in Kharkiv region caused 53 per cent of overall civilian casualties in May.

HRMMU documented 24 attacks on energy infrastructureі 19 attacks in Government-controlled territory and five in territory occupied by the Russian Federation., destroying or damaging power generation plants and electricity substations and temporarily disrupting access to electricity and water supply.
