According to the report, she died while documenting damage in the Podil area.
Baulina previously worked for Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s anti-corruption foundation before leaving the country.
Authorities declared the foundation illegal and labeled it an extremist last year, causing many employees to escape abroad.
The Insider said the shelling injured two and killed one other person.
Baulina has already sent multiple reports from Kyiv and Lviv in western Ukraine, according to The Insider.
The publication sent its “heartfelt condolences” to the reporter’s family and friends.
Oksana Baulina is one of five journalists reported to get killed during the month-long conflict.
In early March, a camera operator, Yevhenii Sakun, for the Ukrainian TV channel LIVE; who also worked for the Spanish news agency EFE, was murdered in Kyiv by shelling at a TV transmission tower.
Two weeks later, Brent Renaud, a 50-year-old American journalist and filmmaker was assassinated while filming in the town of Irpin, near Kyiv.
