Anatoly 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 return of their sons, when the vehicle came under gunfire. Klyan, who worked as a cameraman for Russian state-run television broadcaster Channel One, sustained a lethal gun wound in the abdomen and died after his hospitalization.
Two correspondents from Russian central television and radio broadcasting company VGTRK, special correspondent Igor Kornelyuk and sound engineer Anton Voloshin, were killed near the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk on June 17.

The journalists had clearly visible PRESS marks at the moment of the attack. According to eyewitnesses, a mortar shell exploded near the Russian filming crew.
