Ready to help the family of the deceased journalist?
On March 13, 2022, Brent Renaud, an American war reporter and documentary filmmaker, arrived in Irpin to film live stories of people forced to flee their homes due to the Russian invasion. At the entrance to the city, Brent, along with cameraman Juan Arredondo, were ambushed by the Russian military. Brent Renaud was shot in the head.

The aggressor seeks to wipe out any evidence of his crimes from the face of the earth. Therefore, they kill all possible witnesses - military, civilians and journalists.

If Brent Renaud had not died, he could have told about the crimes of the Russian army in Irpin.

He would have filmed how the Russian army treacherously shot columns of civilian vehicles. Even with white flags. Even with the inscription "Children".

Through his film, the world could see the true stories of the survivors of the occupation. The stories of those whose relatives were held hostage by the aggressor's army and mercilessly shot in the streets for no reason.

He could show how barbaric Russians behaved in the homes of ordinary Ukrainians.

The killings and shootings of journalists are a gross violation of international law.
The enemy can turn a blind eye to laws, but he cannot close the eyes of the world to crimes. After all, honouring the memory of those who died for the truth, we will continue to tell their immortal stories.
