Media reports: Russian journalist, PMC employee killed in Libya

The Ukrainian portal Znak.com, citing anonymous sources, informs that in Libya, a Russian journalist from Yekaterinburg, Yevgeny (Zhaksybay) Ilyubaev, died. It is reported that last week he was buried in the village of Novouorsk, Orenburg Region (Russia), where he was born.




It is noted that the deceased 55-year-old Evgeny (Zhaksybay) Ilyubaev was a graduate of the journalism department of the Ural State University (USU), worked as a press secretary for Sverdlovsk Regional Rapid Response Unit Sova Rescue Services (Yekaterinburg).

Allegedly, he repeatedly participated in hostilities and came to conflict zones on the territory of Syria and Libya as an employee of PMCs (presumably this is PMC "Wagner", which, possibly, is controlled by Evgeny Prigozhin).

The portal’s interlocutor specified that about a year ago Ilyubaev received the medal “For Courage” for participating in special operations.

When reports were sent that ours died in Libya, for some reason bad thoughts immediately appeared. They began to find out if he was among the dead. So it happened

- added a source.

It is emphasized that the relatives of Ilyubaev, who were invited for identification several weeks ago, reported the incident.

In turn, we cannot confirm or refute the information about the death of Eugene (Zhaksybay) Ilyubaev.

    ... a Russian journalist, a PMC employee, was killed.

    - I never heard that journalists were employees in such organizations. The operations carried out by PMCs and similar structures, as a rule, do not need special attention of the media in any way, but rather the exact opposite. Was he publishing a wall newspaper for the staff there? Some garbage ... Maybe he died in Libya, but it’s very unlikely that he was a "PMC employee" ... Or he was definitely not a journalist in this PMC ... Although he needs to be in 55 years old to be unique in order to participate in these games ...

    This is more like another fake on their part.

    How can a journalist be an employee of PMCs? This is a violation of all conceivable norms.

    What can you do? Gossip spread? winked About the (possibly) journalist-ChOPovets, who was probably an employee of the PMC, allegedly owned by Prigogine? what
    He could participate, but he might not participate, "or maybe this janitor was walking after a new broom" (a plasticine crow).
    When you find out for sure, then publish. sad

    "PMC employee" - and what did he want? Salary needs to be worked out.
