The russian occupiers are fighting against the objective coverage of their war crimes in Ukraine - they are killing and shooting at journalists.

At least 35 journalists have already become victims by racist militants.

Three were killed. The journalist Victor Dudar was lost during hostilities near Nikolaev. Live cameraman Yevhen Sakun was killed in a rocket attack in Kyiv. Brent Reno, a USA citizen, video journalist and documentary filmmaker, was killed at a checkpoint in Irpen, Kyiv Region.

Many journalists were wounded by targeted enemy shelling.

The armored car with marking of "press" of the Swiss journalist Guillaume Bricke during movement towards Nikolaev was fired at by the Russian military. The journalist was injured.

Two journalists from the Czech edition of Voxpot, Maida Slamova and Vojtech Bogach, came under fire from Russian troops. Two Danish Ekstra-Bladet correspondents, journalist Stefan Weichert and photographer and reporter Emil Filtenborg Mikkelsen, were shot.

Russian troops have attacked the British television group Sky News - chief correspondent Stuart Ramsey and his four colleagues were returning to Kyiv when they were ambushed. The bullet hit Ramsey in the back, cameraman Richie Mokler was rescued by a bulletproof vest, which was shot twice.

Ukrainian journalist Alexandra Kuvshinova, a Fox News consultant in Ukraine, died in the attack. She was only 24 years old. Alexandra Kuvshinova was killed along with our cameraman Pierre Zakrevski. Their car was hit by oncoming fire

The enemy tried to destroy Kyiv, Lutsk, and Rivne TV towers under targeted fire, and seized TV towers and TV studios in the temporarily occupied cities.

The actions of the occupiers are aimed at imposing racist propaganda and ideology and suppressing all other information resources.

The killings and shelling of journalists are a gross violation of the Hague Conventions and Declaration, the Geneva Convention for the Protection of Victims of War and its Additional Protocols, and the Convention on the Laws and Customs of Land Warfare, which provide security guarantees for journalists.
