Journalist Valeria Glodan and her three-month-old daughter were killed in a Russian missile attack on the city of Odesa on April 23, the journalist's friend Olena Povoliaieva wrote on Facebook.

"I can't believe it. We weren't close friends, but still we were friends, that's for sure," Povoliaieva said.

"I was a colleague (of hers) for a year-and-a-half, working closely with this wonderful, sincere and kind girl,” Povoliaieva said.

“She has a very young daughter. She had. Three months. And she did not survive. Unspeakably sorry. I want to scream and climb the wall."

Valeria's mother also died as a result of the airstrike.

The journalist's husband, Yuriy, survived, as he went to the store just before the missile strike.

"My dear ones, Kingdom of Heaven! You are in our hearts!" he wrote on Facebook and posted photos of his wife and daughter.

The woman supported volunteers and protested against the war.
