"Fragmentary fracture of the two lower extremities is a diagnosis given by a Ukrainian doctor to a British journalist. The journalist is currently in intensive care under medical supervision. I would like to address our partners, a citizen of your country who was on the territory of Ukraine, performing an editorial task. His diagnosis is above. This man was not at a military facility, which, according to Russian officials, they are constantly aiming. He was seriously injured without not being at a military facility", said in his Facebook account рrosecutor general Iryna Venediktova.
It is worth noting that when receiving a shrapnel wound, Benjamin Hull was not at a military facility, but was collecting news about Russia's war in Ukraine.
The prosecutor called on Europe to reconsider the issue of imposing a ban on flights over the territory of Ukraine due to another wounding of a foreign journalist by the Russian military.
As previously reported, on March 13 during the shelling, a former journalist of The New York Times Renault Brent received a fatal gunshot wound to the head. His press colleague, journalist Juan Arredondo, was seriously injured. He was taken to the Okhmatdyt hospital in Kyiv. According to medics, the life of the injured journalist is no longer in danger.
