Ukraine: BBC reporter Clive Myrie returns to Kyiv to cover conflict

BBC News’ Clive Myrie has been asked to stay safe after returning to Ukraine this week for more coverage, amid speculation he could become Newsnight’s new presenter.

The reporter, 57, flew to Eastern Europe in late February following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, with Clive providing regular updates to BBC audiences on the ongoing war.

He covered the conflict from the capital Kyiv before leaving the city last month and then returning to the UK after two weeks in Ukraine.

The reporter, however, vowed to return to the war-torn country and has now returned, with he hosted BBC News at Six last night live from the capital.

Clive posted another photo from the city earlier today, with him showcasing a “beautiful, bright morning” in the capital city – as he continues his coverage.

His return to Ukraine brought well wishes and concern from his followers, who took to the comments section of his recent posts to urge reporters to stay safe.
