Today colleagues and journalists honoured the memory of Russian Pervy Kanal TV cameraman Anatoly Klyan, one year after his tragic death in the warzone in the DNR. On the first floor of the Government House, there was a poster with Klyan’s portrait. Nearby, a candle burned. Members of the media stood in silence and laid red carnations near the poster. Viktor Petrenko, the head of First Republic Channel (PRK), said, “In time, the DNR Union of Journalists and VGTRK will install a memorial plaque to honour Anatoly. We’ll inscribe the names of all the journalists killed covering the war here on the same plaque”. Pervy Kanal sound tech Timofei Generalov said, “Those of us who were his colleagues could tell you about Anatoly, who spent more than forty years as a cameraman, so we can say that we appreciate the remembrance and consideration that DNR people are showing to a person dear to us. Today, our channel showed a story about Anatoly. In future stories, we’ll supplement it with a presentation on the planned memorial plaque at the Government House”. LifeNews correspondent Semyon Pegov said, “Reporting the death of Anatoly caused a real stir amongst us journalists. To tell the truth, Donetsk wasn’t the hottest spot in the Republic then. However, Anatoly was a victim of in this lawless war, where they shoot at journalists and doctors. We’ll always remember and mourn him, as we remember and mourn all of our colleagues who died doing their professional duty, like Igor Kornelyuk and Artyom Voloshin, and others”. 68-year-old Anatoly Klyan died in the night of 30 June 2014, when junta forces shelled a bus carrying journalists. He worked as a TV cameraman for over 40 years. During this time, he filmed stories in hundreds of places, including in areas of military operations… Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Afghanistan. A decree issued by President of the Russian Federation V V Putin posthumously awarded him the Order of Courage.
