MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russia is demanding that the relevant international organizations, primarily UNESCO, immediately condemn the murder of Nikita Tsitsagi, a military correspondent for the News.ru portal, in the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR), Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Sunday.
News.ru said earlier in the day that its military photo correspondent Tsitsagi had been killed in an Ukrainian armed forces attack near the town of Ugledar in the DPR.
"We demand that the relevant international organizations and structures, first and foremost the Director-General of UNESCO [Audrey Azoulay], whose direct responsibility is to respond to cases of attacks and murders of journalists, immediately and decisively condemn this cold-blooded crime," Zakharova said in a statement, published by the ministry.
The journalist was targeted by the Ukrainian military, the spokeswoman said.
This is the second attack on media workers by Ukraine in a week, the spokeswoman said, adding that the attacks had a similar pattern.
