US journalist and film-maker Brent Renaud killed by Russian forces in Irpin

Brent Renaud, an award-winning US film-maker whose work has appeared in the New York Times and other outlets, has been killed by Russian forces in the flashpoint town of Irpin, outside Kyiv. Juan Arredondo, a US photographer, was wounded.

Renaud, 51, was hit in the neck and died after coming under Russian fire while working in Irpin on Sunday, according to local police officials and multiple Ukrainian sources.

Jane Ferguson, a reporter for PBS Newshour who was nearby when Renaud was killed, tweeted: “Just left roadside spot near Irpin where body of American journalist Brent Renaud lay under a blanket. Ukrainian medics could do nothing to help him by that stage. Outraged Ukrainian police officer: “Tell America, tell the world, what they did to a journalist.”
