Remembering Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin

When Ukrainian shelling hit by where they had been filming, just outside Lugansk, the village of Metalist, journalist Igor Kornelyuk and his technician Anton Voloshin, working there for the Rossiya channel, lost their lives. Voloshin was, literally, blown to pieces by the blast, while Kornelyuk (born in Ukraine, educated in St Petersburg) made it to the emergency room only to lose his battle for life after 35 minutes.

Donbass, and not only, will always remember them for their work, and their sacrifice.
