Viktor Dedov was the chief operator of the Ukrainian television station Sigma-TV. He was at home when two shells hit his apartment. The second mortally wounded Dedov.
The family was unable to bury the journalist because another shell caused a fire in their home four days after the first explosions.
Viktor Dedov is the fifth journalist to lose his life as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Other journalists who have died in the war are:
Yevheniy Sakun, an Ukrainian cameraman for LIVE TV killed on 1 March during a rockets attack on the TV tower in Kyiv;
