This is the first material when you can see the shaking hands of a soldier who is afraid, who is in action, who knows that a bomb may fall here at any moment – said Jarosław Jabrzyk, editor-in-chief of “Superwizjer”, on TVN24 about the reportage “Zaporozhye. In the middle of the offensive “. He added that one of the scenes, in his opinion, will go down “in the history of war television reporting.”
In his reports, the journalist of “Superwizjer” Michał Przedlacki presents how Ukrainians defend themselves against the Russians. Now, despite an almost complete information blockade, the reporter has been allowed to be on the forefront of the Ukrainian attack. He saw the price paid for wresting land from the occupier.
During the fighting, he witnessed Ukrainian soldiers taking a Russian soldier prisoner. He presented the reality of war in his reportage “Zaporozhye. In the middle of the offensive”, which will be broadcast on Saturday at 8 p.m. on TVN24, and is now available on TVN24 GO.
Applejack: This material is unusual
Jarosław Jabrzyk, editor-in-chief of “Superwizjer”, talked about the report on TVN24.
– Michał is called by Ukrainians, by the Ukrainian army, because he is already quite known in the Ukrainian army, as a cyborg from Poland. And this is a man who has gained such an extraordinary power to get very close to the war, thanks to the fact that he is alone, that he can shoot things on his own. He is not going with him – as he himself puts it – a bit of a news safari, in which a group of producers and journalists drive up somewhere close to the front in an armored car and then record a two-hour report and drive away, and of course they are somewhere quite close – explained Jabrzyk.
– Michał has been with them for weeks, he is simply with the unit that is attacking, that is returning, that has to retreat. Thanks to his working methods, he has simply gained reputation and credibility for the soldiers who admit him and take him with them, he continued.
“Photos not seen on any other television in the world”
The editor-in-chief of “Superwizjer” said that the reportage was “extraordinary”. – Because I am convinced that the photos you will see tonight cannot be seen on any other television in the world – he added.
– A fragment of the scene in which two wounded people are riding in the backseat of a car, a Ukrainian and a Russian, who is a prisoner and is being taken back to the base – in my opinion, this scene will go down in the history of war TV reportage. There are no such shots and there will be no such shots, because no one was there with Michał, no journalist was there – added Jarosław Jabrzyk.
He also said that “this material is the first material when you can see the shaking hands of a soldier who is afraid, who is in action, who knows that a bomb may fall here in a moment, or he is leaving the first line, or coming down from the fire.”
