Journalist and paramedic Iryna Tsybukh (call sign Grenade Pin) was killed in action in Kharkiv oblast on May 29.

This was announced by the Medical Volunteer Battalion "Hospitaliers".

"This is an unspeakable pain and an incredible loss not only for our battalion, but for Ukraine as a whole. Grenade Pin used to say: 'The only freedom of choice in a country at war... the only kind of freedom in this context is the fight for freedom,'" the battalion wrote.

"Hospitaliers" promise to announce the date for Iryna's wake later.

Iryna Tsybukh was the regional broadcasting department manager at Suspilne, worked with Hromadske Radio, and was a paramedic at the medical battalion "Hospitaliers".

In her December 2022 interview with IMI, she noted:

"I would like to praise those journalists who didn't leave the field, keep working with their outlets, stay to tell stories for the Ukrainian audience as well, knowing it better than anyone, and to tell them 'thank you'. These colleagues have my great respect."

According to the Institute of Mass Information, Iryna Tsybukh is the 81st media worker to die in the course of Russia's aggression on Ukraine.
