According to the Young Theater, where she was a member, revered Ukrainian actress Oksana Shvets was killed in a Russian missile attack on a residential building in Kyiv. She was 67 years old, according to reports. Shvets worked in theatre and film for decades, and her achievements earned her one of Ukraine’s greatest honours, the title of “Honored Artist of Ukraine” — it’s also known informally as “Well-Deserving Artist” in English. In any event, the award is only given to the country’s most accomplished performers.

The Young Theater expressed “irreparable anguish” over Shvets’ death in its release, before going into detail about how she died.

“During the rocket shelling of a residential building in Kyiv,” the statement reads, “a well-deserving artist of Ukraine Oksana Shvets was killed.”

Shvets was born on the 10th of February, 1955. She is a graduate of the Ivan Franko Theater’s theatrical studio and the Kiev State Institute of Theater Arts. Shvets had previously worked at the Ternopil Music and Drama Theater and the Kiev Theater of Satire, in addition to the Young Theater. Shvets has been in a number of Ukrainian films, including “Tomorrow Will Be Tomorrow,” “The Secret of St. Patrick,” “The Return of Mukhtar,” and the TV show “House With Lilies,” in addition to her theatre work.

Shvets is the latest in a long line of public people who have died as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Actor Pasha Lee was reported dead earlier this month after joining forces to defend the country. Two Fox News journalists, camera operator and war journalist Pierre Zakrzewski and Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra Kuvshynova, were killed outside Kyiv this week while reporting.
