MOSCOW, September 3 (RIA Novosti) – International human rights organization Amnesty International called for an impartial and effective investigation into the death of Rossiya Segodnya photojournalist Andrei Stenin in Ukraine, Heather McGill, the organization's representative in Ukraine told RIA Novosti Wednesday.

“We always call for a thorough, impartial and effective investigation into deaths of this kind, it is particularly important. And we are calling for the investigation of similar incidents in Ukraine,” McGill said.

“Amnesty International deeply regrets the tragic death of the journalist. We are very concerned obviously with the death of a journalist. It is particularly important that the journalists are able to do their job, to be protected to give us the information that we need,” McGill added.

On Wednesday, Rossiya Segodnya Director General Dmitry Kiselev announced that according to information from the Russian Investigative Committee, Stenin, who went missing in Ukraine early in August, died about a month ago near Donetsk.
