A Russian journalist has been killed in a drone attack in eastern Ukraine, his news organization said Sunday, two days after the death of another correspondent near the front line.

“Our correspondent Nikita Tsitsagi was killed during an attack by Ukrainian army drones,” News.Ru posted on Telegram.

It said the attack happened around the Saint-Nicolas monastery near the town of Vugledar, the scene of fierce fighting for the past three months.

On Thursday, a journalist for Russian state television was killed and another wounded in a Ukrainian drone strike in Golmivsky, a Russian-controlled village close to the front line in the Donetsk region.

The Russian foreign ministry accused Ukraine of deliberately targeting the journalists.

President Vladimir Putin said earlier this month that “at least 30” Russian journalists had been killed since the start of the conflict in Ukraine. AFP has not been able to verify the claim.
