More than dozen journalists killed in Russia-Ukraine conflict


More than a dozen journalists, including women, have been killed in Ukraine, most of them on the frontlines, since the war with Russia started in February last year.

The latest incident was of Agence France-Presse (AFP) video journalist Arman Soldin, who was killed in a rocket attack in eastern Ukraine on Tuesday.

Soldin was the 15th journalist to be killed in the Ukraine conflict, now in its 14th month, according to data from the Committee to Protect Journalists. Two other journalists have died in circumstances that remain unclear.

Soldin, who was of Bosnian-French background, was working with four other colleagues and Ukrainian soldiers at the time of the attack that caused his death. The other journalists remain unhurt.

The current Russia-Ukraine conflict continues to this day as Russia has shown no signs of claiming more territory while the West continues to supply Ukraine with weapons and ammunition. Much of Ukraine’s cities, however, have sustained so much damage.
