Prvobitno je objavljeno da je novinar Brent Reno radio za Njujork tajms, ali ovaj list je to demantovao.
„Brent je bio talentovan fotoreporter i filmadžija, ali nije bio na zadatku za Njujork tajms u Ukrajini“, napisao je Kliford Livaj, urednik u Njujork tajmsu.
.@nytimes is deeply saddened to learn of the death of an American journalist in Ukraine, Brent Renaud.
Brent was a talented photographer and filmmaker, but he was not on assignment for @nytimes in Ukraine.
