Stuart Ramsay, a British journalist, had been shot and wounded in Kyiv while covering the war in Ukraine. It is reported that the Sky News chief correspondent and his four colleagues were returning to the capital of Ukraine when they were ambushed. Reports claim that they were trying to escape from the car when a bullet hit Stuart in his lower back while Richie Mockler, the camera operator, took two rounds to his body armour. The reports were later informed about the involvement of a Russian reconnaissance behind the attack.
As the news surfaced on social media, netizens are praising the bravery of the reporter. Prime Minister Boris Johnson also praised the journalist’s bravery as she said that they were putting their lives at risk so that the truth comes out. Taking to Twitter, Boris Johnson said that free passes will not be intimated or cowed by brutal and indiscriminate acts of violence. Talking about the incident, it happened on Monday when they were returning to Kyiv after cancelling a trip to another town as they thought it was unsafe.
Apart from Stuart and Richie, the reporter involved in the incident were producers Dominique Van Heerden. Martin Vowels, and Andrii Lytvyenko. Reports state that Stuart Ramsay had returned to the United Kingdom. Recalling the event, the journalist said there was a small explosion out of nowhere so the car came to a stop. He added that soon bullets started smashing into the car.
Ramsay further said that they knew they had to get out of the car in order to survive but the incoming fire was intense. It was stated that two producers gout out first while the third producer followed them. After them, it was Ramsy and the camera operator who came out. The Sky News chief said that at that time, he wondered if his death was going to be painful and it was the moment when he was hit in the lower back.
However, Stuart said that he did not feel that much pain and it felt like he was being punched instead. He called the team fortunate to have gotten out safe but expressed sadness for all the people in Ukraine losing their lives and their respective loved ones. He added that the Ukraine-Russia war is getting worse every passing day and that it needs to stop. Follow our site for more such updates and news across the globe.
