The Russian journalist has previously worked for several lifestyle magazines, such as Time Out Moscow and In Style, writes Security.
Since then, he has started working more politically, and started as a producer at the Anti-Corruption Fund. The organization was founded in Moscow in 2011 by now-imprisoned Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny.
Baulina was arrested, among other things, when Russian police stormed the headquarters of the Anti-Corruption Fund in Moscow.
He was later forced to leave the country, when Russian authorities classified the organization as an extremist.
That’s when he started working for The Insider and CODA Storyes.
The Russian woman is not the first journalist to be killed in Ukraine since the Russian invasion. Organization Reporter Without Boarding (RSF) has recorded a total of four journalist killings so far. In addition, seven people were injured.
