The distraught family of Halyna Hutchins were yesterday demanding answers about her death as they frantically tried to beat red tape to fly to the US.
Friends said dad Antoly and mum Olga were “beside themselves with grief” after being told of the tragedy by her husband, Matthew.
Halyna’s husband Matthew is comforting their eight-year-old son Andros at their home in CaliforniaCredit: Supplied as a technical service. No is implied or inferred.
A pal in Kiev, Ukraine, where Halyna grew up said: “The family is grieving but at the same time they are asking and they will want answers. If someone made a mistake then they will have to pay.
“They just don’t understand how something dreadful like this could have happened when safety measures are supposed to be in place.
“They are also frantically trying to secure documents to get to the United States. Her mother does not have the correct paperwork.”
Film studio bosses fear a mega lawsuit from the family if it turns out that Halyna’s death could have been avoided.
Husband Matthew was last night comforting their eight-year-old son Andros at their home in California.
The lad is named after her maiden name Androsovych, in a nod to her east European roots.
Halyna had written that she grew up on a Russian military base “surrounded by reindeer and nuclear submarines” and her father was reported to be a former member of the Soviet navy.
She spoke English and Russian, graduated from Kiev University in journalism and often found work as a BBC documentary producer.
Last night her sister Svetlana, who lives in Indonesia, said: “I cannot comprehend [her passing]. I loved her very much. I was very proud of her, and she was my role model. We were always close.
“This loss is a great grief for our family, and I see how hard it is for our parents. Hopefully, time will ease our heartache.”
University friend Yana Nestoliy said: “She was a wonderful woman and a dear friend and mother.
“Her parents are devastated and are trying to get to the US to see her but it is very difficult for them. I heard from another friend that it was Matthew who called them to break the news.
“She was fantastic at her work and after she left Kiev University she moved to the United States but she would often come back to Europe to work.
“Her mum wants to go to the US to see her and find out what exactly happened but is having trouble with her documents.
“It was her dream to live in America and make films and now she has died for her dream.”

The post reads: The Ghanian authorities are holding Maria against her will. This is sad. What is this Covid extortion? These people are doing fake covid results to keep Nigerians in quarantine and extort them. What is this mess? Kept her in a stinking hostel even when the doctor confirmed she’s covid negative. Again, what is the essence of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Recall that Maria Chike received backlashes after sharing a video with her married lover Kelvin.
This generated several reactions from social media users, especially after Maria failed to debunk the news of dating and snatching the married man, Kelvin.

Bukola Kiitan apologised to her fans and followers that she would not meet up for a proposed meet and greet at the Cinema today.
According to Bukola Kiitan, her current health status is an aftermath of a movie shoot.
She wrote: Am so sorry can’t meet up for the meet and greet at the cinema today. Aftermath of movie shoot.
Recall that Bukola Kiitan tackled former Big Brother Naija Housemate Ka3na for dragging actors about movie production and brand influencing.
In a post shared on the microblogging platform, Ka3na claimed that most Nollywood producers and actors had become brand influencers; hence there are no latest Nigerian movies on Netflix.
Ka3na opined that many of these Nollywood stars joined brand influencing because former housemates of the BBNaija show opened their eyes to know that brand influencing is a lucrative business.
She added that brand influencing is not a competition as she urged Nollywood producers and actors to make good movies for the Christmas holiday.
She wrote: Most Nollywood movie producers/actors have become brand influencers. No latest Nigerian movies on Netflix. Bbn housemates don open their eyes to influencing money. It’s not a competition. Y’all make us good holiday movies, please.

Displeased with the statement, Kitan Bukola slammed Ka3na for insulting people who have struggled for years to get fame, unlike her, who was fortunate because of the BBNaiija platform.
Kitan Bukola urged Ka3na not to discredit Nollywood stars because of the fame which she got within a few months or use her grace to disgrace others.

Some People Think Men Are Bankrolling My Lifestyle, Says Actress Uche Elendu
Actress, Uche Elendu has debunked the speculations online that men are bankrolling her lifestyle.
The light skinned role interpreter said:”I don’t know why people don’t understand that women are now independent. Several times, false judgment has been made against me in that regard. Women work hard to make a name for themselves and they do not want to be swept under the carpet.
“Personally, I work so hard to be financially comfortable. But, despite my hard work, if I buy a car or a house, some people would still say, ‘Who is the man bankrolling her’? That is gender inequality and people do not understand that everybody is not the same.
“I remember that last year (October 2020 in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests) when I lost goods in my store, some persons were saying I stop crying because the alleged politician that bought it for me would stock my shop again,she stated in a recent interview.
Elendu debuted her acting career by featuring in a movie titled Fear of the Unknown.
As a result of her marriage, she took a long break from acting and this action eventually derailed and stagnated her career as an actress. In 2015 she secured the lead role in a movie titled Ada Mbano. This movie was the catalyst which re-ignited her acting career.
