On June 13, the NTV {НТВ} camera crew was fired upon in Russian-occupied Gorlovka, Donetsk region. The cameraman Valery Kozhin, who was wounded together with Ivliev, has died.

NTV correspondent Alexei Ivliev, who was wounded in Gorlovka, reported that he lost his arm. In a video released by the hospital, Ivliev said: “One arm is missing, but that’s normal. We’re alive, we’ll be fine,” the BBC quoted him as saying.

Alexey Ivliev has worked for NTV since 1993 and has often covered events in conflict zones, covering the war in Ukraine from a propagandistic Russian perspective.

NTV confirmed the death of Kozhin, saying that doctors tried to save him for several hours, but his injuries proved to be incompatible with life.

The two journalists were seriously injured in the village of Golmovskiy (Nikitovsky district of Gorlovka). The injured were transported to the hospital in Gorlovka, which is located in the Russian-occupied part of the Donetsk region.

According to the Russian-appointed head of the illegally annexed self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, Denis Pushilin, the two journalists suffered mine and blast injuries.

It is not clear from the information whether they came under fire or encountered a mine or unexploded ordnance.
