Russian journalist killed, three wounded near Ukraine frontline

A war correspondent for Russia’s RIA news agency was killed and three other Russian journalists were wounded by shelling near the frontline in Ukraine’s southeastern Zaporizhzhia region on Saturday, according to Russia’s defence ministry. The ministry stated that the journalists were injured in a Ukrainian artillery strike. Although they were evacuated from the battlefield, RIA correspondent Rostislav Zhuravlev died during the journey. The ministry assured that the other journalists were in a serious but stable condition and receiving necessary medical care.

RIA confirmed in a report that its correspondent had been killed while reporting in the frontline village of Piatykhatky, and one of its cameramen was also injured. The defence ministry claimed that Ukraine had used cluster munitions in the incident, but did not provide evidence for this claim. RushHourDaily was unable to independently verify this information. It is worth noting that Ukraine received cluster bombs from the United States this month, but the country has pledged to use them solely to dislodge concentrations of enemy soldiers. Cluster bombs are highly controversial due to the potential danger they pose to civilians, and many countries have banned their use. Ukraine has repeatedly emphasized that their use will be limited to the battlefield.

The United Nations has accused Russia of using cluster munitions during the war.
