Sky News Channel Crew Shot at While Reporting From Ukraine

Reporting from Ukraine remains a dangerous task for reporters as British news outlet Sky News Channel is the latest to see their journalist under attack near the capital city of Kyiv.

In the video footage provided by Sky News’ chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay and four others in his unit journeying by car around Bucha with “trusted contacts in the town told us it was quiet and promised to show us the convoy and tell us about what had happened.”

“The Ukrainian people are being attacked from the air, from artillery, from ground troops and takes. The debris of this war litters every street,” Ramsay stated before the chaos ensued. 

“But the government has warned for days of Russian saboteurs, who’ve infiltrated the country to bring terror. Death squads who are attacking civilians in their cars as they flee. They do exist as we found out.”

Abruptly, there are shots heard as the camera jumps. “Something blew up under us,” one voice can be hear saying inside the car said. “Stop!” someone else shouted as the firing rose rapidly. Glass smashed and coated the ground.

Ramsay stated they believed it was a Ukrainian checkpoint and a mistake they were being shot at, so the crew identified themselves as journalists.

“Somehow, we have to get out of this, but the rounds keep coming,” Ramsay continued. “It’s a professional ambush. The bullets just don’t miss.”

The five Sky News Channel team members made it out of the car and to safety, looking for shelter in a warehouse where three caretakers accommodated them inside.
