Two journalists were fired on by Russian troops in Ukraine, one dead

Two journalists were shot by the Russian occupants at the crosspoint near the bridge in Irpin when they were filming how the refugees were leaving the city. According to one of them, they got split and he didn`t know what happened with his friend.

As it appeared, another one, US journalist Brent Renaud, who previously worked for the New York Times died.

As the police of the Kyiv region reported, in the area of the Romanovsky bridge, Russian invaders opened fire on the car with two New York Times journalists inside. The 51-year-old correspondent was killed and his colleague wounded.

“The invaders cynically kill even international media journalists who try to speak the truth about the atrocities of Russian troops in Ukraine. Naturally, the profession of a journalist involves risks, however, US citizen Brent Renault paid with his life for trying to highlight the treachery, cruelty and ruthlessness of the aggressor, “€said Andrei Nebitov, head of the Kyiv region police.

Later the Time issued a statement on death of Journalist Brent Renaud “€œWe are devastated by the loss of Brent Renaud. As an award-winning filmmaker and journalist, Brent tackled the toughest stories around the world often alongside his brother Craig Renaud. In recent weeks, Brent was in the region working on a TIME Studios project focused on the global refugee crisis. Our hearts are with all of Brent’€™s loved ones. It is essential that journalists are able to safely cover this ongoing invasion and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.”€
