Fox CEO Makes Secret Trip To Ukraine To Meet With Zelensky



Fox Corporation CEO Lachlan Murdoch took a trip to Ukraine to meet up with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.

During the meet up, Zelensky thanked Murdoch for Fox’s coverage of the Ukraine-Russia war.

Besides Murdoch, Fox News journalist Nemjamin Hall also made the trip and was awarded with the Order of Merit, III class.

Back in 2022, Hall was seriously injured after being wounded by Russian forces.

Per Ukraine:

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with Fox Corporation CEO Lachlan Murdoch, Fox News journalist Benjamin Hall and The Sun journalist Jerome Starkey, who visited our country.

The Head of State thanked the representatives of the media group for comprehensive coverage of Ukraine’s fight against Russian aggression and for telling about Russian atrocities despite the risks to themselves.

In the spring of 2022, a group of Fox News journalists came under Russian fire in Kyiv region. Cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and Ukrainian fixer Oleksandra Kuvshynova were killed. Benjamin Hall was seriously wounded.
The President noted the important role of the world media in consolidating international support for Ukraine and expressed condolences to all those whose relatives and friends were taken by the war.

“All this time, journalists, cameramen, editors, photographers, drivers have been on the frontline. As this is a hybrid war, information is also a weapon in Russian hands. My sincere condolences to the families and friends of those very brave men and women who lost their lives trying to show what is happening in Ukraine. In particular, it is thanks to journalists from many countries that we now have such support in the world,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

The President awarded Benjamin Hall with the Order of Merit, III class, for his outstanding personal contribution to strengthening interstate cooperation, support for Ukraine’s independence and territorial integrity.

Here’s what The Hill reported:

Lachlan Murdoch, the chair of Fox Corp., and reporter Benjamin Hall met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky this week as the leader awarded Hall with the country’s Order of Merit.
The trip to Ukraine marks Hall’s first since he was gravely injured in March 2022 during shelling while covering the country’s ongoing war with Russia. Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and local Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra Kuvshynova were killed during the same attack.

The trip was organized by Murdoch, who took over as chair of Fox for his father and media mogul Rupert Murdoch this month, after he had been invited by Zelensky to visit the country.

Zelensky thanked Murdoch for his visit and “emphasized that it is a very important signal of support at the time when the world’s attention is blurred by other events,” the Ukrainian government said in a statement.
