We strongly condemn Russia’s drone attack on @TV4 crew in the Zaporizhzhia region. A Ukrainian producer sustained small injuries, and a reporter and a photographer miraculously were not hurt. All had clear marks ‘PRESS’. This is yet another Russia’s war crime against journalists. pic.twitter.com/ZnaVU6tSTS

As IMI reported, the filming crew of the Swedish TV4 came under Russian drone fire in Zaporizhzhia oblast on September 19. Reporter Johan Fredriksson and photographer Daniel Zdolsek were out of their car filming when it was hit by a drone. The journalists were unharmed. However, their local producer Oleksandr Pavlov and two Ukrainian policemen accompanying the TV4 crew received minor injuries. The TV4 crew was going to film a report about the Ukrainian counteroffensive. The visit to the said area had been pre-planned and organized by the local police. During the attack, the car they were traveling in and the filming equipment were destroyed.
