MOSCOW, April 15. /TASS/. Wounded Russian journalist Andrey Lunyov working for the Zvezda TV channel remains in a grave condition and doctors are soon to announce a decision on surgery, the TV channel said on Wednesday.
The reporter has penetrating wounds to his head and neck and also multiple shrapnel wounds to chest and legs. "After the first-aid treatment, the journalist’s condition slightly improved and the doctors were able to reduce brain swelling," the TV channel said.
Lunyov was wounded on Tuesday after stepping on a trip wire while covering events in Shirokino, near the southern Ukrainian port city of Mariupol. He accompanied the members of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission.
The militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic provided the first aid to the reporter. They reached the tragedy scene and carried the wounded journalist. The process was led by the OSCE mission’s members.
