Russian Journalist Oksana Baulina Killed in Kyiv Shelling

Russian shelling on Ukrainian capital Kyiv killed Russian journalist Oksana Baulina on March 23, becoming the fifth journalist to die in a month of the war.

Baulina, who had been reporting in Ukraine for investigative news website The Insider, died while she was filming the damage caused by Russian shelling in the Podil district of Kyiv, the news outlet reported.

The shelling also killed one other person and injured two others who accompanied Baulina, The Insider said.

Baulina previously worked as a producer for Russian opposition leader’s Anti-Corruption Foundation, but she fled Russia after the Russian government branded the organization as extremist last year.

Alexey Kovalyov, an investigative journalist at Russian- and English-language independent news website Meduza based in Latvia, called Baulina “a Russian journalist with phenomenal sense of moral clarity.”

Other journalists killed in the war include Ukrainian TV channel LIVE camera operator Yevhenii Sakun, U.S. journalist and filmmaker Brent Renaud, and Fox News journalists Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra Kuvshinova.
