Sky News chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay and his team came under fire on Monday while filming in Ukraine.

Stuart was in the country reporting on the on going war with Russia, which began on 24th February 2022.

Camera operator Richie Mockler took two rounds to his body armour, while Stuart was wounded with a hit in the lower back.

In the video below and in a report on the Sky News website, Stuart said:

“A police officer walked to the car and handed us ice creams through the window, telling us we could turn left and go down the road to Kyiv – he said it was open.

“We set off, but it was deadly quiet, and it’s fair to say we were concerned. But we travelled slowly forwards towards an intersection. There was rubble in the road, but that’s normal now. There were no soldiers, it all seemed deserted.

“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.

All five members of the car escaped and dived down a 40-foot embankment where three caretakers beckoned them to come inside their workshop. They were later rescued by local police.

Stuart and his team are now safely back in the UK.
