"Since the invasion began, the count of the missing has risen four times: currently, there are 50,150 persons unaccounted for," said Nebytov.

The official added that ongoing hostilities, Russian bombardments of Ukrainian cities, and occupation make gathering and verifying missing persons reports more challenging.
