Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelsky sent a letter of condolence to Rand’s family on Monday.
“A talented and courageous journalist, Brent lost his life while documenting the human tragedy, the devastation and the plight of millions of Ukrainians,” Zelensky wrote. “With all his courage and determination, he traveled to the most dangerous war zones to capture the unprecedented brutality and depravity of our nation by the invading state.
“The people of Ukraine, who are fighting against Russian rule to protect democracy in their country and in the world, are mourning you.”
Zelensky went to thank Rand for Benjamin Hall sacrifice and commitment.
“Let Brent’s life, service and sacrifice inspire generations of people around the world to fight for the power of light against the power of darkness,” he concluded.
A British journalist working for the Fox News Channel in the United States has been injured while covering the war in Ukraine, the network says.
Fox broadcast confirmed that Benjamin Hall – listed by his U.S. State Department correspondent – was in hospital after an incident outside the capital, Kiev.
Afternoon news presenter John Roberts added that teams on the field are still collecting details of the incident.
Mr Hall was reportedly gathering news at the time.
In a memo circulated to Fox staff on Monday, CEO Suzanne Scott said “there is a minimum level of detail right now” and called for prayer.
“This is a strong reminder to all journalists who put their lives on the line every day to cover the war,” he wrote.
Mr. Hall, 39, joined Fox News in 2015 and has been extensively involved with the network’s foreign affairs coverage.
He has covered several wars from the frontline, including parts of the Middle East.
A dual US-UK citizen, he has completed both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in London.
Anton Geraschenko, an adviser to Ukraine’s interior minister, wrote in a telegram on Monday that Mr Hall’s condition was serious.
Mr Gerashchenko added that Ukrainian officials did not currently know the fate of a Fox News cameraman and a producer.

Earlier Monday, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Irina Venediktova said a Western journalist had been injured and was being treated by Ukrainian doctors.
The State Department’s correspondents’ association said in a statement that the State Department’s press corps was “shocked” to learn that Mr. Hall had been injured.
“We know Ben for his warmth, good sense of humor and the highest level of professionalism. We wish Ben a speedy recovery,” said Sean Tandon, president of the association.
Mr. Hall was wounded Sunday when another U.S. journalist, Brent Rand, was shot dead while working in the area. Two more journalists were injured in the same attack and were admitted to hospital.
