Explosion: Russia attacks Swedish TV crew

According to its own information, a team of the Swedish TV channel TV4 has been attacked by a Russian drone in the frontline area in southeastern Ukraine. This reports the German news website n-tv.de.

Reporter Johan Fredriksson and photographer Daniel Zdolsek were uninjured in the incident the day before, the station reported on its website. Their local producer and two Ukrainian police officers accompanying the journalists, on the other hand, suffered minor injuries. Their vehicle and camera equipment were completely destroyed. The station stressed that the quick intervention of local police probably saved lives. “This time we were lucky. The Russian missile that was dropped by a drone that we heard hit our car right in the trunk. Fortunately, there was no one in the car,” Fredriksson said. “This is what it looks like for millions of people in Ukraine right now: constant danger to their lives.”

For the time being, the station’s detailed information on the exact course of the attack could not be independently verified. According to the channel, the two experienced war journalists are currently on a reporting trip in the Zaporizhzhya region.
