The Kremlin claims that Kyiv intentionally attacked a Russian journalist, injuring an AFP reporter.

On Monday, the Kremlin charged Kyiv with conducting a “deliberate attack on journalists” in Ukraine’s southeast Zaporizhzhia area, which resulted in the death of a reporter for the Russian state news agency RIA.

An investigation into Rostislav Zhuravlev’s death has been opened in Russia.

Separately, the French news agency Agence France-Presse reported that one of its video reporters had been hurt while covering a Ukrainian artillery position when a drone attack occurred.

The reporter was named by the source as Dylan Collins, a US citizen who has written extensively about the conflict in Ukraine.

According to the report, he suffered numerous shrapnel wounds close to Bakhmut, an eastern city that Russian forces finally took control of in May after months of fighting. He was receiving care at a neighborhood hospital.

12 journalists have perished in Ukraine since the crisis began in February 2022, according to the cultural branch of the UN, UNESCO, as of July 20.
