The devastation and destruction rained down on Ukraine by the Russian forces has taken many civilian lives.
President Putin insists that only military targets are being attacked but many ordinary people, often trying to flee the violence, have been killed.
How that happens was made terrifyingly clear to one of our Sky News teams reporting from there this week.
Russian forces were nowhere to be seen as Stuart Ramsay’s team carefully drove through a town near Kiyv on Monday afternoon.
But, without warning, they came under heavy and sustained gunfire from what the Ukrainians believe to be a Russian reconnaissance squad.
Incredibly Stuart, his producers, Dominique Van Heerden, Martin Vowles and Andrii Lytvynenko and his camera operator Richie Mockler escaped with their lives.
Sky News has decided to tell the story of what happened to show the sheer scale of the mayhem and violence as the Russian invasion enters a new, and very deadly phase. The team are now safely back in the UK.

this warfare press is insane
That must have been so hectic
such bs idiots risk there lives for news fuk dat
it looks like staged tho
Every conflic has pictures that with time become synonymous with a particular event this to me does that at the very least for the early days of the war.
Narrator and producer basically left cameraman for dead
range around 500m. They are so lucky to come out of that.
I mean let's face it they could pass for soldiers couldn't they what with those helmets.
Bad planning and looking for that story at all cost.
I guess this group of "journalists" don't know what 'heavy fire' is.
I wonder how was it possible to escape and not get shot
Still unbelievable after 9 months. Fking murderers.
Beyond imagination what that must have felt like. Can't believe they bleeped out the curses. Just which bits do they find offensive. Actually, it's probably a bot that does it.
news reporters NEED to start carring guns.
Should just receive macron's guarantees and thsi would never happened

How stupid they have to be to go in the war…Why people are so stupid
