Anastasiia Yalanskaya, a young volunteer in Ukraine, was shot and killed while delivering aid.

The 26-year-old Ukrainian woman was delivering food to a dog shelter in Bucha, 30 kilometres outside Kyiv, on Friday when she was shot and killed alongside two men she had been volunteering with.

Despite denials from Russian President Vladimir Putin, the number of civilian casualties in Ukraine is mounting – though the total number remains unclear.

As of March 1, the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine said it has recorded 752 civilian casualties.

The next day, Ukraine’s State Emergency Service said 2,000 civilians had been killed.

Yalanskaya had been delivering food to a dog shelter in Bucha that had been without supplies for three days.
