BBC’s Clive Myrie shares emotional update as he leaves Kyiv


BBC presenter Clive Myrie shared an emotional update as he left the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.

Myrie has become a regular face of BBC reporting from the front line over the past week, reporting with Kiev as her backdrop amid the sounds of aerial sirens and shelling.

The journalist, 57, shared a photo of a long traffic as he spent a day out of Kyiv, along with his thoughts for others fleeing the country.

Clive wrote: “It was a long day of driving and queuing out of Kyiv. Imagine having to leave everything you know in a hurry because you get bombed!

“What are you packing? Are the pets coming too? It’s freezing cold and you pray that those in neighboring countries will welcome you and not despise you!

“My thoughts are with the million people who have fled Ukraine because they could be killed. The millions who have fled Syria and many more millions fleeing repression, poverty, war. They all pray to be welcomed into other countries as human beings. That’s all they ask.”

It comes as the situation in Ukraine continues to worsen after Putin’s troops shot two British journalists in an ambush on Friday.

Sky News chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay was shot in the lower back as gunfire rained down on a car carrying his crew to Kyiv on Monday.

Cameraman Richie Mockler was shot twice in his body armor before the team managed to escape and take cover. They were later rescued by Ukrainian police.

It is understood that the entire crew, including Sky News’ Dominque van Heerden and Martin Vowles and local producer Andrii Lytvynenko, are now safe.
