Two reporters with the investigative journalism outfit Slidstvo.info were shot at on April 14 as they left a filming expedition near a house belonging to Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov.

Neither of the reporters or a taxi driver with them were injured from the shots, which flew above their heads, one of the journalists said.

The reporters – Makim Opanasenko and Kirill Shapar – had traveled to Plyuty, 44 kilometers south of Kyiv, to use a quadcopter to film the construction of a new mansion belonging to Akhmetov.

“We were interested in how the construction was going, what they were building,” Opanasenko told the Kyiv Post in a phone interview.

The reporters, accompanied by a taxi driver, were packing up to leave when a shot rang out above them.
