The entire crew is safe and well, including Sky News’ Dominique van Heerden and Martin Vowles. Local producer Andrii Lytvynenko, the team’s fifth member, is back in Ukraine with his family. Two Danish journalists were victims as well while traveling to a battered daycare in Ohtyrka. Despite wearing bulletproof vests, reporters Stefan Weichert and Emil Filtenborg Mikkelsen were both injured.
