RT journalist Graham Phillips injured in Donbas

42
Journalist of the TV channel Russia Today Briton Graham Phillips received a shrapnel wound while working near Donetsk airport. The correspondent of "Komsomolskaya Pravda" Viktor Huseynov, who works there, said that at the moment when the mortar shelling began from the Ukrainian positions, Graham did not have time to hide.

The message about the injury of Graham Phillips was published in his microblog Twitter special correspondent VGTRK Yevgeny Poddubny:
Graham Phillips @GrahamWP_UK received a shrapnel wound in the Sands. Light wound. A shard of 120-mm mines flew into the back, pierced body armor.


According to others, Phillips was injured not in the Sands, but near them. Mortar shelling was made from the Ukrainian positions.

Other sources report that the injury is really easy: Graham is in the hospital, talking and has the ability to walk. The bulletproof vest of the journalist took the main energy of the shard upon himself.

RT journalist Graham Phillips injured in Donbas


It is worth recalling that Graham Phillips has been working in the Donbass for the past few months. He was abducted by Ukrainian security forces, but Graham was subsequently released after the intervention of the journalistic community and the British diplomatic services. The sharp and truthful reports of Graham cause outrage in Ukraine.

We wish to Graham Phillips a speedy recovery!

      With all due respect to Graham, he "found" this shell. He is more than a war correspondent and little less than a militia soldier. Watching his video, I was surprised at his indiscriminateness, it seems that fear has dulled, because he has been there since spring and without rest.

        Well, if you remember, in the summer he was held captive where he was treated not quite humanely and he did not drift from the Maidan .. there is something reckless in him.

          The main thing will survive and there will be something to tell, and then a journalist. Maybe in the west even find out what's going on in 404.

          A desperate guy !!!! good One of the FEW Western "independent" journalists who bring the TRUTH to Western inhabitants !!! hi

          During his work in Ukraine, he was twice detained by SBU officers. On May 20, while trying to leave Mariupol for Slavyansk, Phillips was detained by fighters of the Ukrainian National Guard. On July 22, the Briton was again taken into custody by the Ukrainian military when he, along with three other correspondents, went to Donetsk airport. Later, the Security Service of Ukraine stated that it had detained Phillips in Donetsk and, after interrogation, announced to him the decision to force expulsion with a ban on entry for three years. According to Phillips himself, he did not even receive a ban document.

    He does not take up arms and does not shoot at the enemy. And, as you probably would like, when you see children torn by ukrov shells ... His weapon is a microphone and a camera, and most importantly, the TRUTH, which so many media today lack so much.

    Health to you, Graham. You are OUR.

    I wonder how the British Foreign Ministry will react to this incident. Still, a citizen of their country was injured in a country that does not officially wage war. In normal countries, this is not forgiven, but here, probably, they will not even notice this case ...
    And to Graham all the best, I hope that a wound will not prevent him from continuing to tell the truth, to which he became a participant

        And our guys, who wore shirt-fronts with the inscription "PRESS", did the presence of such shirt-fronts help to escape from death ?? And our peacekeepers in South Ossetia have the corresponding inscriptions on equipment, helmets, buildings helped to avoid death from Georgian shells ?? You just need to have a CONSCIENCE. And there will be no deaths.
