"This time we were lucky. The Russian drone hit the back door of our car directly. Fortunately, there was no one in the car," said Fredrickson. Ukrainian producer Oleksandr Pavlov was slightly injured in the attack, and two Ukrainian police officers who accompanied the TV4 crew were also wounded.
The car and the recording equipment were completely destroyed in the attack. The report states that the employees of TV4 planned to record a report on the Ukrainian counter-offensive. The trip to this area was planned and organized by the local police. The TV4 team has completed several security trainings, and Fredriksson has been monitoring geopolitical hotspots for more than thirty years.
