Klyan, 68, was among other journalists on a bus with mothers of military conscripts going to a pro-Kiev military unit in the Donetsk Region to demand the off-duty release of their sons, when the vehicle came under gunfire. Klyan, who worked as a cameraman for Channel One, sustained a lethal gun wound in the abdomen and died upon his hospitalization.
“I condemn the murder of Anatoly Klyan,” Bokova said in a statement. “I call on the authorities to conduct an investigation into the murder and bring to account those responsible.”
Klyan’s murder was another in a chain of lethal attacks on journalists in the ongoing combat operation, which Ukrainian authorities are conducting in southeast Ukraine.
