She went to Ukraine as a correspondent, where she managed to make several reports from Lviv and Kyiv.

Quote: "We will continue to cover the war in Ukraine, including such Russian war crimes as indiscriminate shelling of residential areas which result in the deaths of civilians and journalists."

Background:

Russian aggressors have killed several journalists since the beginning of the war in Ukraine: video journalist Brent Reno was killed at a checkpoint near Irpin, journalist Viktor Dudar was killed in hostilities near Mykolayiv, and live cameraman Yevhen Sakun was killed in a missile attack in Kyiv.

Fox News photojournalist and cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski died in Ukraine, along with Ukrainian filmmaker Oleksandra Kuvshynova.

In addition, the Russians captured several media representatives: Victoria Roshchyna, Hromadske journalist, and Kakhovka journalist Oleh Baturin. They have already been released from captivity. Oleh Baturin had been tortured for eight days. Roshchina was forced to record a complimentary video for Russian security forces.
