Ukrainian police are reporting that an American citizen have been killed in a blast in Chernihiv. 

The Chernihiv Region Police posted on Facebook on Thursday: ‘Police are documenting the consequences of enemy shelling of civilians in the center of Chernihiv.

‘Today, the occupiers once again carried out a heavy artillery attack on unarmed civilian residents of the city. There are dead and wounded people. Among the dead – a US citizen.

‘Police officers are helping to evacuate affected citizens to medical facilities.   

‘Chernihiv police investigators are working at the scene. Law enforcement officers are carefully documenting all the circumstances and consequences of Russian war crimes.’ 

A State Department spokesman told DailyMail.com: ‘We are aware of reports of the death of a U.S. citizen in Ukraine on March 17. We are monitoring the situation closely but cannot confirm these reports at this time. 

‘We offer our sincerest condolences to the families of all whose lives have been lost in this unprovoked and unjustified war. We have no further comment at this time.’ 

On Sunday, American journalist Brent Renaud was killed while filming refugees in Irpin. Since then, Irish FOX News cameraman Pierre Zakrewski and Ukrainian producer Oleksandra Kuvshynova have also been killed. 

President Biden promised in February to respond harshly if Putin attacks US citizens.
