As quoted by The Guardian, the statement read, “She was a beautiful Orthodox girl, a patriot, a war reporter, an expert on central channels and a philosopher. Her speeches and reporting have always been profound, grounded and restrained.” 

“She never called for violence and war. She was a rising star at the beginning of her journey. The enemies of Russia meanly, stealthily killed her,” it read. 

“Our hearts yearn not only for revenge or vengeance … we only need our victory,” it added.
