In Mariupol, the Russian military killed Lithuanian director and documentary filmmaker Mantas Kvedaravičius, as it was reported by " Army Inform ", Russian director Vitaly Mansky and Lithuanian media. 

"Army Inform" notes that the director died, when he was trying to leave the city. According to Lithuanian media, a rocket could have hit his car.

Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda has already expressed his condolences over the death of Kvedaravičius, reports.

"Not only Lithuania, but the whole world has lost a famous artist who, despite the danger, worked in Ukraine, which was attacked by Russia. I wish strength and strength to his family, friends and all fans of Kvedaravičius' talent, "said the Lithuanian President.

Mantas Kvedaravičius was born in 1976. He received a master's degree in cultural anthropology from Oxford University. In 2011, he made the documentary Barzah about the war-torn Chechnya. The film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and won an Amnesty International Award. 

In 2016, he made a documentary "Mariupol" about the city, which a year earlier was at the forefront of the Russian-Ukrainian war. The film was screened at the Berlin Film Festival.
