Dmytro Yevchyn, a reporter for Krym.Realii (a Radio Liberty project), was injured in the Zaporizhzhia oblast on the morning of January 17, reports Radio Liberty.

The filming crew consisting of journalist Dmytro Yevchyn and cameraman Mykyta Isayko came under artillery fire while filming a TV story in the Zaporizhzhia oblast. The journalists were working near the front line settlement Robotyne.

Dmytro Yevchyn received a shrapnel wound in the leg from mortar shelling. Ukrainian soldiers and the cameraman provided him with first aid and evacuated him to a stabilization point in a nearby village, later transporting him to a hospital in Zaporizhzhia.

According to the doctors, the surgery was completed successfully; Dmytro Yevchyn will remain in intensive care for the time being.

Dmytro Yevchyn has been working for Krym.Realii (Radio Liberty) since 2018, hosting TV programs and producing high-profile stories about life in Crimea under Russian occupation. Since the start of Russia's large-scale invasion into Ukraine in 2022, he has been covering the combat operations, working on the front line. Together with cameraman Mykita Isayko, he has been reporting from the front line in the southern segment of the Ukraine–Russia front.

The IMI monitors Russia's crimes against the media and journalists in Ukraine. In the year and ten months since the start of the full-scale invasion, Russia has committed 548 crimes against journalists and media in Ukraine.

According to the IMI, Russia's aggression has resulted in the death of 70 journalists since the beginning of the full-scale invasion; 10 of those were killed while reporting, and 25 journalists were wounded.
