Boris Johnson praises the courage of Sky News team who were SHOT and injured by Russian ‘assassination squad’

Boris Johnson has praised the bravery of British journalists reporting from the front line of Vladimir Putin’s bloody invasion of Ukraine after a team of reporters was shot and injured by a suspected Russian ‘assassination squad’.

The Prime Minister took to Twitter to share his thoughts after terrifying footage showed Sky News’ chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay being hit by a bullet in the lower back while in a car carrying his crew towards Kyiv on Monday. Two rounds also hit camera operator Richie Mockler in his body armor during the ambush.

Mr Johnson lauded the ‘courage’ of British war correspondents reporting from the ground and said they were ‘risking their lives to ensure the truth is told’.

He tweeted on Saturday morning: ‘The courage of these journalists, putting themselves in terrifying and dangerous situations, is astonishing to watch. 

‘They’re risking their lives to ensure that the truth is told. Free press will not be intimidated or cowed by barbaric and indiscriminate acts of violence.’

Shocking video showed the moment bullets rained down on the car and the team screaming as the windscreen’s glass smashes around them as rounds of fire barrelled into the vehicle before the group shouts out: ‘Stop, we’re just journalists!’

Ukrainian officials told the news crew that the attack was allegedly carried out by a saboteur Russian reconnaissance squad. 

After a tense standoff, the team miraculously ran for their lives using a concrete wall for cover before finding shelter in a factory unit. They were later rescued by Ukrainian police.

Ramsay, recalling the terrifying attack for Sky News, detailed the moment the eerie quiet was pierced by the sound of a small explosion that rocked the car.

‘Bullets cascaded through the whole of the car, tracers, bullet flashes, windscreen glass, plastic seats, the steering wheel, and the dashboard had disintegrated,’ he wrote.

‘I do recall wondering if my death was going to be painful. And then I was hit in the lower back. “I’ve been hit”, I shouted. But what amazed me was that it didn’t hurt that bad. It was more like being punched, really.’

The whole crew, including Sky News’ Dominique van Heerden and Martin Vowles, are now safe and back in the UK. The fifth member of the team, local producer Andrii Lytvynenko, is back with his family in Ukraine.

It comes as two Danish journalists were shot at as they travelled to a shelled kindergarten in Ohtyrka, northeast Ukraine, on Wednesday.
