Chief correspondent Stuart Ramsay was hit by a bullet in the lower back while in a car carrying his crew towards Kyiv on Monday.
Two rounds also hit camera operator Richie Mockler in his body armour during the ambush.
Footage shows bullets striking the car and the team screaming as glass smashes around them.
It is thought the attack was carried out by a saboteur Russian reconnaissance squad.
After a tense standoff, the team miraculously ran for their lives using a concrete wall for cover before finding shelter in a factory unit.
They were later rescued by Ukrainian police.
The whole crew, including Sky News’ Dominique van Heerden and Martin Vowles, are now safe and back in the UK.
The fifth member of the team, local producer Andrii Lytvynenko, is back with his family in Ukraine.
Recalling the incident, Mr Ramsay, who was not thought to be seriously wounded, said: ‘The first round cracked the windscreen. Then we were under full attack.
‘Bullets cascaded through the whole of the car… the steering wheel and dashboard had disintegrated. I do recall wondering if my death was going to be painful.’
It comes after Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries appeared close to tears in the Commons this week as she paid tribute to journalists ‘risking their lives to provide unbiased and accurate news from a live war zone’.
