The partial mobilization of Russia was a big topic in yesterday’s SRF Tagesschau. That’s why the live broadcasts from the studio to the east were made right at the start. Correspondent Christoph Wanner spoke from Moscow and Luzia Tschirky from Kharkiv.

After the two journalists for SRF had assessed the situation, there was a moment of shock shortly before the end of the live broadcast. When presenter Boesch spoke again in the studio, you could see Tschirky looking to the right in surprise.

She then turned her head in this direction and, amazed, pointed a finger in the direction of her gaze. Something had clearly upset Luzia Tschirky, but the sound from Kharkiv had already been turned off. Shortly thereafter, the SRF ended the live broadcast.

Shortly thereafter, the reporter spoke on Twitter about the incident and gave the all-clear. “I saw a bright light over Kharkiv out of the corner of my eye. I pointed in the direction of the light to alert the cameraman to the potential danger.”

She doesn’t know at the moment whether it was rockets or air defense, Tschirky wrote shortly after 8 p.m. In response to a concerned comment, he also assured: “Everything is fine with my team. I’m sorry to hear you were concerned.”
