    RT TV channel news coverage of the shooting in Ukraine’s Mariupol in May 2014 that killed many civilians, was nominated for the Golden Nymph Award of the Monte Carlo TV Festival, the channel said in a press release on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) On May 9, 2014, when residents of Mariupol were celebrating the World War II Victory in Europe day, clashes between the Ukrainian National Guard and pro-federalization activists resulted in the deaths of at least 20 civilians, according to RT.

    The program has been nominated in the Best 24-hour News Program category.

    RT’s RUPTLY video agency freelance cameraman Fyodor Zavaleikov was heavily wounded while filming the tragic events in Mariupol.

    Other nominees in the Best 24-hour News Program category include US’ CNN, UK’s Sky News and Canada’s CBC.
