Evidence Suggests Russia Is Targeting Journalists in Ukraine

From a story on niemanlab.org headlined “Evidence suggests Russia has been deliberately targeting journalists in Ukraineā€”a warr crime”:

At least 15 media workers have been killed in Ukraine since Russia began its full-scale war in February 2022. Along with targeting civilians, hospitals, schools, orphanages, residential buildings, communications centers, and places of worship, the Russian state has been accused by the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine of deliberately targeting journalists.

In a conflict such as the war in Ukraine, many journalists risk their lives to report the truth and reveal war crimes committed by both sides. But when journalists themselves are targeted, these war crimes almost always go unpunished.
