Sky News’ Stuart Ramsay was half an hour from death after being shot | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Stuart Ramsay, who is Sky’s longest-serving foreign correspondent, has recalled his horrific experiences in the Ukraine War. The journalist opened up about what it was like to be shot, and spoke about narrowly missing being blown up in a missile strike.


Stuart described his experience of arriving in Kyiv about a week or so before the invasion happened, where he was “woken up around 3am by explosions”.

It only got worse from there, as passing checkpoints became “extremely dangerous” for the press due to Russian spies posing as civilians and press.

He recalled in Radio Times how the Sky News team “had horrific moments at checkpoints” due to men with guns being “sometimes untrained” and “sometimes drinking”.

He then went on to speak about driving through checkpoints to Bucha, a city in Ukraine’s Kyiv Oblast.

Remembering how they had a “bad feeling” at the time, Stuart spoke about how the car was soon hit by gunfire.

“They opened fire on the car for three minutes,” he explained. “I became sort of catatonic.

“I remember thinking, ‘I’m going to die here. I wonder how much it’s going to hurt.’ And then I was hit.

“It didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would. It felt like being hit with a small hammer with sparklers on it.”

We suspect the Ukrainian Security Service had received intelligence of the attack.”

The journalist concluded he was “lucky to live” after police took him to a field hospital.

“The surgeons said the bullet was half a centimetre away from hitting my lungs,” he shared.

“When I got back home, I took my armour out of my kit bag and discovered six extra rounds in my back which I didn’t know about.

“My wife looked at it and said, ‘Holy s**t!’
