TSN correspondent Yulia Kiriyenko suffered a concussion on July 19 in the combat zone in Donetsk oblast, where she was filming a material about the Ukrainian defenders, report TSN and Detector Media.

Yulia clarified that it happened at the UAF positions.

"The Russians opened targeted fire either from a tank or from a howitzer – we didn't have time to process it. We felt five hits, two aimed at the dugout where we were hiding. Fortunately, while they were reloading their weapon, we managed to get into the car and drive away from the shelling," the journalist said.

According to her, she realized she was feeling unwell while on the way back. The soldiers took her to the doctors at the stabilization point, who confirmed that she had a mild concussion.

"Well, hello, first combat injury. A Russian tank or a howitzer gave me a concussion. Now I am also a stabilization point patient. P.S. They gave me oxygen. Now I'm feeling better," the reporter wrote on Facebook.

On July 19, TSN aired a report by Yulia Kiriyenko about Ukrainian troops destroying Russian equipment on one of the segments of the frontline and the work of medics at a stabilization point near Bakhmut.

Yulia Kiriyenko is a war correspondent who has been working on the front line since 2014, covering the hot spots. Yulia's husband has been defending Ukraine in the ranks of the Armed Forces since the first days of the war. In March 2022, he was awarded the medal "For Courage". It was he who hit the first tank in the convoy approaching Brovary at the beginning of the full-scale invasion.

As IMI reported, in March 2022, the TSN filming crew (reporter Yuliya Kiriyenko and cameraman Volodymyr Rybachok) came under Russian artillery fire in Kyiv oblast.
