The network’s announcement read:

Earlier today, we shared with you the news that our colleague, Pierre Zakrzewski, was killed while reporting with Benjamin Hall outside of Kyiv. We can now confirm that another journalist died in that same attack. Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova died alongside Pierre when incoming fire hit their vehicle. She was just 24 years old. This photo shows her with Pierre and our correspondent Trey Yingst. Sasha was serving as a consultant for us in Ukraine. FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott says Sasha was helping our teams navigate the city, gather news and speak with sources. Working around the clock, she helped to share Ukraine’s story with the world and we are grateful to her for that. Our correspondents and our producers say she was hard working, funny, kind and brave, which you have to be to do this kind of work. We delayed delivering the news of her death out of respect for her family. We offer them the deepest condolences and gratitude for her work. And we ask you to think of them, to keep them in your prayers as they struggle with the loss of their young daughter. Just 24 years old doing courageous, courageous work.

In addition to the casualties among the FNC team, journalist Brent Renaud also recently lost his life, as the Russian Army offensive near Kyiv continues to intensify.
