    MOSCOW: A journalist with Russian state television has been shot dead in eastern Ukraine, despite a shaky truce between pro-Moscow separatists and Ukrainian forces, the reporter’s employer said on Monday. Anatoly Klyan, a 68-year-old cameraman, was among a group of Russian journalists on a reporting trip in the separatist city of Donetsk, Channel One said. “Once on site, shots rang out from the soldiers’ side. Anatoly Klyan was mortally wounded in the stomach,” said the channel. Russian national television stressed the journalist — the third media worker to have died in eastern Ukraine over the past two weeks — had been killed despite the truce which is set to expire later on Monday.
