Death: Viktor Dedov killed – Viktor Dedov, the operator of the Sigma TV channel, was killed in Mariupol as a result of Russian invaders shelling.
According to Ukrinform, Serhiy Tomilenko, the chairman of the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine (NUJU), commented on this on Facebook.
“Another Ukrainian journalist has died as a result of Russian occupation — Viktor Dedov, the main director and senior operator of the Mariupol TV channel Sigma-TV,” Tomilenko said.
“There are two mines. The first may be found in our bedroom. That’s where my mother and I are right now. The second can be found in our kitchen. Vitya has arrived… “Sasha!” I exclaim, and she responds, “Mom, I’m here!” And it’s only in the elevator that I realize: I don’t see or hear Vitya… “Sasha, I don’t have any light!” was the last (his – ed.) phrase. Sasha also provides a flashlight, despite the fact that the room is dimly lit. The carotid artery is a blood vessel that runs through the neck. “Vitya lives for a few more minutes, makes it to the hallway, and becomes our brilliant Angel for all time,” Dedova wrote.
As reported by mailbd.net, When the mines flew into the flat, the journalist and his family were at home, he said. Victor’s wife Natalya Dedova posted on social media about the circumstances of his death on March 11 in the blockaded Mariupol.
They were unable to bury Viktor, according to her, because the home burned down after four days owing to the arrival of a shell. Obituary not available at the time of this publication.
