According to the New York Times, a teenager, a young girl and a mother were killed by Russian military mortar shells while trying to escape near Kyiv. The father is said to have barely survived. The photo reporter’s description is shocking.
According to journalists, Russian troops advanced into the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv and opened fire on a bridge with mortars, killing at least three members of a family. The New York Times published a disturbing photo of four civilians lying on the ground by their photo reporter Lynsey Addario, which read: “Ukrainian soldiers trying to save the father of a family of four – only one pulse at this point Hai – he was hit by mortar shells while trying to escape from Irpin near Kyiv on Sunday.” The dead included a teenager, an eight-year-old girl and mother.
The New York Times wrote that Ukrainian troops blew up the bridge to slow the Russian advance. Hundreds of refugees had gathered to cross the Irpin River on the damaged bridge since Saturday. On Sunday, about a dozen Ukrainian soldiers were in the immediate vicinity of the bridge, but instead of fighting, they helped civilians carry goods and children. On the Kyiv side of the bridge there was a stretch of road about a hundred meters long. To deal with this, people formed small groups and fled together.
The “New York Times” also published a film recording of a freelance journalist named Andrey Dubchak. Citizens can be seen walking in the background, suddenly there is a violent explosion, and then people lie down on the street. “The soldiers rushed to help, but the women and children were dead,” the newspaper wrote. “His luggage, a blue trolley box and some rucksacks, along with a green carrier bag for a small dog that was barking, were scattered here and there.”
