Rust director of photography Halyna Hutchins’ parents are stuck in Ukraine

The family of Halyna Hutchins, the camerawoman who was fatally shot by Alec Baldwin on the set of the western film Rust, is stuck in Ukraine where her mother works as a nurse at a Kiev hospital, a representative for her husband said.

The spokesman for Hutchins’ widower, Matthew, said TMZ that his late wife’s mother, Olga Androsovych, continues to work at the hospital in the capital, knowing she cannot safely leave the war-torn country.

His representative also told the outlet that Hutchins’ father, Anatoly Androsovych, remains in Ukraine while her sister and 3-year-old niece have made it to the Romanian border and are trying to be evacuated.

Matthew also reportedly believes a no-fly zone should be established over Ukraine, as requested by US President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. But President Biden refused, saying it would escalate the war.

Hutchins was born in Zhytomyr, Ukraine – then part of the Soviet Union – in 1979 and spent most of her childhood at a Soviet naval base.

She studied journalism at Kyiv National University and retained her Ukrainian citizenship even after leaving the country and marrying US citizen Hutchins.

News of the family’s ordeal comes five months after the cameraman was killed while filming on set in New Mexico.

Matthew has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Baldwin, who denies responsibility for Hutchins’ death and has filed his own lawsuit to be cleared of liability.

The 63-year-old “30 Rock” actor also accused the late cameraman of giving him the instructions that led to the fatal accident on October 21.
