On Sunday, Russian troops murdered reporter Brent Renaud in Irpin, Ukraine, according to Kyiv regional authorities on social media. At the time of the incident, Brent Renaud was accompanied by Juan Arredondo, a Colombian World Press Photography winner photojournalist.

We were going to film all the refugees leaving. We got into a car…someone offered to take us to the other bridge and we crossed a checkpoint, and they started shooting at us.
