STORY: Radio Liberty said in a statement that Vira Hyrych, who had worked in their Kyiv bureau since February 2018, had been killed after a Russian rocket hit the building she lived in.
The death was the first reported in Thursday's (April 28) missile strike as the head of the United Nations visited Kyiv. Ukrainian officials said two Russian missiles had struck the capital. Russia has not commented on the incident.
At least 10 people were initially reported wounded in the strike but Mayor Vitali Klitschko said a body had been recovered on Friday.
