Kyiv Media Hub – Taking the Risks: Reporters Working in the War Zone

Kyiv Media Hub is a series of monthly events and networking activities in the framework of “The Europe-Ukraine Desk” project. These events are aimed at bringing together Ukrainian journalists and their foreign colleagues to discuss professional topics related to journalistic work in Ukraine, share experiences, and create opportunities for collaboration.

Join us at the third Kyiv Media Hub event organized by n-ost. On September 7th at 18:30 o'clock, we are hosting a panel discussion titled "Taking the Risks: Reporters Working in the War Zone" at Urban Space 500 in Kyiv.

The panel discussion will focus on the threats and dangers that come with reporting on Russia's war against Ukraine. Our invited speakers – Stas Kozliuk, freelance journalist, photographer, and fixer, Stephane Siohan, correspondent in Ukraine and Eastern Europe for the French daily newspaper Libération, and documentary filmmaker, and Roman Golovenko, lawyer for the Institute of Mass Information Інститут Масової Інформації (ІМІ) – will share their experiences and reflect upon the following issues:

  • Risks assessments and security measures;
  • How the situation has been changing through the years: since 2014 until now;
  • Journalists as targets: losses among professionals.

The discussion will be moderated by Tetiana Ogarkova, a journalist in charge of international outreach at Ukraine Crisis Media Centre Український кризовий медіа-центр.

The event will be live-streamed on the Facebook page of n-ost and the Facebook pages of the partners of the event: UkraineWorld, Internews Ukraine and Lviv Media Forum.
