Media reports said the cameraman who worked for the Russian public television, Channel One, was fatally wounded in the stomach when the convoy he was travelling in came under fire reportedly from Ukrainian forces in Donetsk.

Klyan became the 6th journalist to lose his life in Ukraine since the political crisis began in the country. Last week, two other Russian journalists, Igor Kornelyuk, Anton Voloshin were killed in Lugansk. In May, Italian photographer Andrea Rocchelli and his Russian assistant Andrei Mironov were killed in the restive region while journalist Viacheslav Veremii was shot and fatally wounded in the stomach at the height of the Kiev protests in Kiev.
