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, delfi.lt 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.
