Anton Voloshin, a soundman employed by Russian public broadcaster VGTRK, was killed by the same mortar shell that also killed VGTRK reporter Igor Kornelyuk on 17 June 2014 near Metallist, a village in the eastern region of Luhansk.

Voloshin was originally reported missing, but his body was found on 17 June 2014 and was identified by VGTRK cameraman Viktor Denisov, who survived the shelling. Their employer confirmed the news at around 22:30 pm on 17 June 2014.

Voloshin's death brings the number of media workers killed in Ukraine in connection with their work since the start of the year to five ­– two reporters, one photo-journalist, one fixer and one media technician (Voloshin).
