Terrible moment Two British journalists shot dead by Putin’s forces after an ambush in Ukraine

HORRIBLE footage shows the moment a British TV reporter and cameraman were shot dead in a hail of bullets while on the job in Ukraine.

The Sky crew was reporting from the city about 20 miles from the capital Kyiv when it came under fire from Russian forces, both hitting reporter Stuart Ramsey and cameraman Richie Mockler.

They drove to the city of Bucha, where the day before a Russian convoy had been destroyed by the Ukrainian army

The video shows them approaching a checkpoint from which soldiers begin firing.

The Sky team was told they were told by the Ukrainians that they were being ambushed by a Russian saboteur reconnaissance squad.

The team desperately tries to duck for cover as the bullets hit their car, sending out sparks as they hit the metal.

Shortly after one of them asks his co-workers if they’re okay, bullets land right in front of the car door.

At this point, cries of pain can be heard alongside the distinct hiss of the bullets.

“The first lap broke the windshield,” Ramsey said.

“Cameraman Richie Mockler crouched in the footwell of the passenger. Then we were fully attacked.

“Bullets went through the whole car, tracers, ball lightning, windshield glass, plastic seats, the steering wheel and dashboard were all shattered.”

He said that producer Martin Vowles, who was driving, got out of the car first, followed by Andrii Lytvynenko, our local producer.

Ramsay said he managed to get out of the car but was hit in the lower back, which he says was “more like a punch, really”.

But he said Mockler was still in the car and bullets were coming his way.

“The laps plowed into the car every time it moved. He was actually protected by the engine block – he knew that.

“He called and we called for him to come. But then silence. It seemed like forever before he emerged over the barrier and leapt at us, followed by a hail of gunfire.

The team eventually found refuge in a factory before Ukrainian police arrived and took them back to Kyiv.

“We five lived. We couldn’t believe it,” Ramsey said.
