Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy wrote a letter to the family of 50-year old Brent Renaud, the U.S. journalist and filmmaker who lost his life while covering Ukraine.

“It is with deep sadness that I am writing to extend my heartfelt condolences to you on the tragic loss of your beloved son and brother, Brent Renaud,” Zelensky wrote.

“The people of Ukraine, who are fighting against the Russian regime to defend their Homeland and democracy in the world, are mourning with you,” he added.

“A talented and brave journalist, Brent lost his life while documenting human tragedy, devastation and suffering of the millions of Ukrainians. With all his courage and determination, he traveled to the most dangerous war zones to film the unprecedented ruthlessness and evil, also inflicted upon our nation by the aggressor state,” Zelensky wrote. “The people of Ukraine, who are fighting against the Russian regime to defend their Homeland and democracy in the world, are mourning with you.”

“We are thankful to Brent for his professionalism and commitment to the values of compassion, ethics and justice,” he added.

“May Brent’s life, service and sacrifice inspire generations of people all around the world to stand up in fight for the forces of light against forces of darkness,” Zelensky concluded.

Filmmaker Juan Arredondo, also an American, was injured in the attack and recounted the story of coming under fire by Russian forces on Twitter:
