Fox News correspondent Benjamin Hall, who was recently wounded in Ukraine, is now out of the war torn country.

"We have an update on our colleague Benjamin Hall who was seriously injured while reporting outside Kyiv on Monday. He is now safe and out of Ukraine," Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott told staff in a memo, according to a screenshot of that memo posted by the outlet. "Ben is alert and in good spirits. He is being treated with the best possible care in the world and we are in close contact with his wife and family."

Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra "Sasha" Kuvshynova, who had been working as a consultant for the outlet, and Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski were both killed.

"In our effort to keep you updated on yesterday's tragic events, we wanted to report that journalist Oleksandra 'Sasha' Kuvshynova was also killed alongside our cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski when their vehicle was struck by incoming fire yesterday while in the field with Benjamin Hall," Scott informed staff on Tuesday, according to the outlet. "Sasha was just 24 years old and was serving as a consultant for us in Ukraine. She was helping our crews navigate Kyiv and the surrounding area while gathering information and speaking to sources. She was incredibly talented and spent weeks working directly with our entire team there, operating around the clock to make sure the world knew what was happening in her country."

Russia's brutal military campaign against Ukraine has left many dead, including civilians.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivered an address to the U.S. Congress on Wednesday, calling for the establishment of a no-fly zone above Ukraine, or alternatively, he indicated that the provision of defense systems and aircraft would help Ukraine defend itself.

"New packages of sanctions are needed constantly, every week, until the Russian military machine stops," he said, according to a translation of his remarks.
