MOSCOW, April 14 /TASS/. Andrei Lunyov, the wounded journalist of the Russian TV channel Zvezda, has been delivered from Novoazovsk, a militia-held city in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, to Russia, the Zvezda TV channel reported on Tuesday.
The Zvezda journalist was seriously wounded on Tuesday when making a footage about the situation in the Shirokino settlement where fighting between the Ukrainian forces and the anti-Kiev militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) had intensified in recent days. Lunyov tripped a mine. The DPR militias were the first to come to his rescue. They carried away the wounded journalist to safety under the guidance of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission /SMM/ in Ukraine. Lunyov was supposed to make a report about its work.
Lunyov was rushed to intensive care in the nearby city of Novoazovsk. The doctors who examined him made a preliminary diagnosis: brain edema, penetrating wounds in the head and soft parts as well as numerous fragmented wounds in the chest and legs. The most serious wound, according to them, was a penetrating cranial trauma.
After the journalist gained consciousness, the doctors concluded he could be transported to a clinic in Russia for better treatment.
