Journalists dive for cover just in time as Russian shell explodes in Luhansk.

JOURNALISTS narrowly escape with their lives by jumping for cover just in time as a Russian shell explodes just inches away from them in this heart-stopping footage.

The dramatic footage here was recorded by Chan Tsz Yuk’s GoPro. In an Instagram post, he said he was heading from Lysychansk into Sievierodonetsk with another photographer, Kaoru Ng, and a local journalist, Mykola Pastukh, who was working as their fixer.

However, the three turned back towards Lysychansk when they saw some burning vehicles and thought it would not be safe to continue.

They were discussing the situation with two Ukrainian soldiers when a shell landed close to where they were standing. After they dove for cover in a ditch, two more shells landed, Chan Tsz Yuk said. Pastukh was hit in the right arm by shrapnel.
