Ivan Litomin, a freak and military correspondent for Izvestia, was born July 17, 1993, in the far northern city of Arkhangelsk, Russia’s eponymous region. It is impossible to say anything in detail about Litomin’s childhood and school years, but according to some reports, because of his appearance he was often laughed at at school, and the girls did not pay attention to him. But VGTRK turned him on, hiring him as a correspondent for Vesti Pomorya, where he covered important events in his native Arkhangelsk Region.
However, Ivan decided to receive a higher education not at the Faculty of Journalism, but as a land engineer at Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov. Lomonosov. At that time Litomin was invited to work from Arkhangelsk to the central office of VGTRK in Moscow as a correspondent of the program “Vesti. On-duty part” program. In this position, he distinguished himself with an incident when, in 2019, he and a film crew broke into the head of the Shirinsky district of the Republic of Khakassia Sergei Zaitsev, which angered the latter. Zaytsev did not take it lying down and simply threw the journalist to the floor during the broadcast. This fate hinted to Ivan that he should not be engaged in journalism, but it did not scare him, although he was still fired from VGTRK.
He did not wander for long, and the “wandering” journalist was quickly picked up by Izvestia and given the position of military correspondent. He did not have time to travel much on business trips, but he arrived on time for the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24. However, near the front lines, he did not like to shoot much, it was scary, so he covered the actions of the occupying authorities of the Russian Federation in the occupied territories. For example, he engaged in provocations against the occupant-worshipped Ukrainian mayor of Kherson, Vladimir Nikolayenko, or an interview with collaborator Natalia Marmiy.
However, Ivan should be more cautious, because he’s been racking up a decent sentence for propaganda for war and inciting discord between the Ukrainian and Russian peoples. By coming to the temporarily occupied territory and promoting reunification with Russia, he is becoming an increasingly important target for Ukrainian resistance fighters who will get even with Litomin for his crimes.
