Sky News’ Ukraine coverage nominated at International Emmy Awards


Sky News' Ukraine coverage nominated at International Emmy Awards

Sky News has been nominated at the International Emmy Awards for its coverage of the Ukraine War.

The submission showcased coverage such as the battle for Bucha and Irpin in the early days of the invasion.

The towns near Kyiv saw fierce fighting as Russian troops tried to reach the capital, and the massacre of civilians provoked widespread international outrage.

Sky’s reporting included special correspondent Alex Crawford on the ground as trapped civilians fled the bombardment and artillery rounds echoed in the background.

Crawford also reported from Irpin as Ukrainians – including some in wheelchairs and on stretchers – were helped to cross a rickety bridge to get to safety.

She was also among the first to interview President Zelenskyy, visiting him in a fortified Kyiv location, as he urged the world to act and impose a no-fly zone.

There was also a terrifying reminder of the indiscriminate attacks the Russians were meting out when a Sky News team came under fire themselves as they headed to Bucha.

The report by chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay and his crew showed them taking cover as their car was peppered with bullets, before they were forced to run for their lives – Ramsay was wounded during the shooting.

The huge flow of Ukrainians forced to leave their homeland was also vividly documented by Lisa Holland.

Reporting from Polish capital Warsaw, she captured the heartbreak as women and children left behind loved ones and boarded buses to begin an uncertain life as refugees across Europe.
