Stories of Journalists at the War

About the project

The project of PEN Ukraine in collaboration with George Gongadze Prize and The Ukrainians

After the full-scale invasion of Russia against Ukraine began on February 24, 2022, every Ukrainian had to choose their role to be efficient and approach the victory. Ukrainian journalists faced such a choice, too.

Should they work in their cities, go to the frontline for some content or evacuate to relatively safe places? Stay in the profession or take up arms? Where could they be the most useful?

“Here-And-Now: Stories of Journalists at the War” is a project which contains 15 stories of those who cover and reflect on the full-scale invasion of Russia against Ukraine, who shoot and record stories from the frontline and the rear, who go live from the air-raid shelters, alongside those who have enlisted to the Armed Forces. All these people speak on their personal and professional choices.

The stories of the project can be read and listened to.

What is this project about?

The war, the journalists at the war, and us all in time of the war
