Kyiv Police Chief Advertisement on Facebook – Renault would have fallen under the fire of the Russian army. The announcement was made on Facebook by Andrei Nepetov, the chief of the Kyiv region police, according to Ukrinform. “The occupiers are cynically killing even international media journalists who are trying to show the truth about the atrocities committed by Russian forces in Ukraine – he writes on social media – and the murder of the 51-year-old New York Times reporter in Irbin.”
The slain reporter was not on the New York Times assignment
“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Brent Reno. He has been a talented photographer and director who has collaborated with us in the past years.” The New York Times wrote this in a statement after Reno’s murder in Irvine. “Although he has collaborated with the New York Times in the past (most recently in 2015), he was not on a mission to Ukraine for the newspaper. Initial information indicates that he was working for us because he was found with the newspaper card he had been given for a mission since years,” the note reads again.
