A Russian journalist has been killed and two others wounded in a shelling attack by Ukrainian forces near the border with Russia, according to the RIA Novosti news agency.

The journalist who died was identified as Andrei Stenin, a photo correspondent who had worked for RIA Novosti since 2009. He had covered conflicts in Syria, Libya, Egypt and other countries.

The agency said Stenin was travelling in a car with other journalists when a mortar shell hit their vehicle. The other journalists managed to escape, but Stenin’s body was found later in the burned car.
