FOX News journalists killed during Ukraine conflict



Two journalists have died in Ukraine, bringing the death toll among journalists in the war to five

Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski was with a journalist when their vehicle was struck by incoming fire in Kyiv.

Pierre died and the Fox journalist with him remains hospitalised.

Ukraine’s ministry of defence confirmed that Ukrainian producer, Oleksandra Kurshynova, was also killed in the same incident a day earlier, blaming Russian troops for the attack.

The pair are thought to have been killed after the vehicle they were travelling in was struck by incoming fire while they were reporting.

Fox News presenter Bill Hemmer announced his colleagues death on air on Tuesday morning, calling the late journalist an “absolute legend” at the news channel.

The White House offered its condolences to the family of Fox News cameraman following a statement from Fox News CEO.


Foreign Correspondent Trey Yingst shared a picture of himself and Mr Zakrzewski, who he said “was as good as they come”.

This tragedy comes days after US filmmaker Brent Renaud was killed in Ukraine after Russian forces opened fire on his vehicle.

The 50-year-old was reporting about refugees when his vehicle was hit at a checkpoint just outside Kyiv.

The EBU said it was in talks with the BBC to host the contest in the UK.

That’s because British entrant Sam Ryder came second in this year’s contest with his single Spaceman.

The announcement was met with disappointment by Ukrainians but the E-B-U doubled down on its position, saying in a statement that it “fully understands the disappointment that greeted the announcement”.
