Initially it was thought that he was a reporter for the New Work Times but came the denial of the newspaper. The news that Renaud was a reporter for the “New York Times” spread because he wore the newspaper badge, but the same newspaper specified that the reporter was not on a mission for the newspaper to report on the events of the war in Ukraine.
