Poynter’s Morning Update on Russia-Ukraine

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

On assignment in Ukraine

NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel is back this Friday with another “On Assignment with Richard Engel.” This time, Engel features on-the-ground reporting from Ukraine. The episode — called “Ukraine: Freedom or Death” — will air at 10 p.m. Eastern on MSNBC and will stream on Peacock.

Among Engel’s reporting is meeting the Bobkov family, who hid in a bunker in Kharkiv for 27 days. Engel also meets and hears the stories of survivors of various atrocities committed by the Russian forces.

Engel also talks with American-Ukrainian Miro Popovych, an Afghanistan vet who is now fighting in Kyiv, the city where he was born. He tells Engel: “We are willing to die. … We are going to do everything.”

There’s also the tear-jerking story of Andriana Susak, a mother who joined the 2014 Maidan Revolution in Kyiv and served as an assault trooper on the frontline. As she stayed behind to fight, she recounts sending her 6-year-old son to safety in West Ukraine and describes feeling as though it might be the last time she ever saw him.
