A veteran cameraman working for Russia's Channel One was killed in eastern Ukraine when a bus carrying journalists and soldiers' mothers was hit by gunfire, the station said on Monday.
Video footage of the attack broadcast on Channel One showed Klyan continuing to film inside the bus even after he was shot in the stomach, stopping only when he grew weak and telling his colleagues "I can't hold the camera any longer".
The bus driver also was hit in the head. He was filmed holding his left hand to his bloody, shaven head while continuing to drive with his right hand until it was safe to stop.

How would shooting people on a bus IN UKRAINE force Putin to invade UKRAINE FROM RUSSIA?
For the same reason Clinton said he bombed Serbia.
Okay, a bus driven by a driver in camouflage approaches the Ukrainian Military base. The Russians are know to use deception and camouflage to conduct it's opperations. The Bus gets shot up. Color me not surprised.
Do we know of any communication between the organizers, the bus and the Ukrainians at the military base? No.
So a few people getting shot on a bus is analogous to claims of suicide? Really?
“Another war crime by the criminals in Kiev. Keep it up and you will force Putin to invade.”
In point of fact it is yourself in conjunction with Putin’s Russian regime which are perpetrating war crimes. You have just used false propaganda to falsely accuse the victims of Russian aggression of committing a war crime in this incident, when in fact it was Putin and his unlawful combatants who committed a number of heinous war crimes in this incident. By propagating those false claims, it appears you may be associating yourself with the commission of those war crimes and may be in violation of the Charter of the United nations and its international law prohibiting the incitement of unlawful aggressions and invasions for territorial conquest. Note, it was Putin who spoke and said:
We dont want to do it, but we will, we will do it only in order to protect Ukrainian citizens. We will put their women and children in front of our troops, not behind, but in front and we will be hiding our solders behind them. I dare any Ukrainian commander to give an order to shoot at such crowd.
It appears Putin has authorized just such a war crime to be committed by putting or allowing the forces he recruited to wage an unlawful war of aggression in the Ukraine to attack Ukrainian military bases during a unilateral ceasefire and put civilian men, women, and children in front of the attacking Russian forces to serve as an unlawful human shield and provocation for further unlawful aggressions.
Your aiding and abetting of these serious war crimes by deliberately propagating false reports of war crimes is a serious matter worthy of condemnation.
This sounds like a set up.
Something is still stuck in my mind from Basic Training some 40 years ago. They said a stomach wound is the most painful of all.
It’s worse than that. The Russians bussed in a bunch of family members as hostages with a basic message: give yourselves up, or your family dies. Very nice. And people say Putin is a defender of Christianity.
