Ex-Journalist Andrei Babitsky Killed in Donetsk

Babitsky was a former correspondent of Radio Liberty and a contributor to Ukraina.ru.

Babitsky was known for his work in Afghanistan and Chechneya where he was arrested by Russia for allegedly being involved with Chechen rebels.

Babitsky then continued his career working with Russian state media Vzglyad and Life and moved to Donetsk. 

It is not yet known how Babitsky was killed.
