Sky news chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay was shot by Russians while the network was covering the Russian invasion of Ukraine. And they were filming at the time.
The correspondents and crew were in Kyiv when they were hit by Russian troops who were targeting them.
“It was professional, the rounds kept smashing into the car — they didn’t miss,” said Ramsay recounting the incident.
The incident happened Monday but the footage and Ramsay’s account didn’t come out until Saturday.
And then out of nowhere a small explosion and I saw something hit the car and a tyre burst. We rolled to a stop.
And then our world turned upside down.
The first round cracked the windscreen. Camera operator Richie Mockler huddled into the front passenger footwell. Then we were under full attack.
Bullets cascaded through the whole of the car, tracers, bullet flashes, windscreen glass, plastic seats, the steering wheel, and dashboard had disintegrated.
Stuart Ramsay report
We didn’t know it at the time, but we were later told by the Ukrainians that we were being ambushed by a saboteur Russian reconnaissance squad. It was professional, the rounds kept smashing into the car – they didn’t miss.
It’s pretty incredible.
