Russians executed photojournalist Maks Levin on the first day of his disappearance
As the Reporters Without Borders (RSF) reported in its investigation, Ukrainian photojournalist Maks Levin and the soldier who accompanied him were brutally executed by the Russian invaders.
“Evidence gathered by the RSF indicates that Ukrainian photojournalist Maks Levin and his friend were executed in cold blood by the Russian military — probably after interrogation and torture. It happened on the day of their disappearance, March 13, 2022,” the investigation said.
To establish the truth, the journalists arrived at the place where on April 1, 2022, the police found the bodies of Levin and serviceman Oleksii Chernyshov.
The group counted 14 bullet holes in the charred part of their car.
Investigators said that Levin was probably killed by one or two shots at close range, and Chernyshov could have been burned alive.
