Factual, objective and professional reporting is always a hot and important topic. However, during extraordinary circumstances, such as wars, it is even more important to know what is actually happening on the ground. Ukraine has been in this kind of situation for eight years now.
Since 2014, the Euromaidan uprising and Russian occupation of Crimea, and especially after the Russian invasion in 2022, propaganda and fake news about events in Ukraine have flooded the Russian, Ukrainian and global information ecosystem.
“Reporting on Ukraine – How to Make Sure the Truth is Heard” is a session that will focus on reporting on and from Ukraine over the past eight years. Panelists Anastasiia Stanko and Iryna Shvets from Ukraine, Una Čilić and Ajla Obradović from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jeremy Druker from the USA currently living in the Czech Republic, together with Jakub Gornicki from Poland, will share their experiences about factual reporting on Ukraine and thoughts on journalism in this country.
During the panel, moderated by Emir Zulejhić from Raskrinkavanje.ba, they will share their experiences on reporting on the invasion and the events in Ukraine since 2014, as well as their perspectives on the invasion itself. In addition, we will hear what they have been working on in the past years and what are the biggest obstacles and challenges in the process of making sure the truth is heard.
This session is planed for the first conference day from 3:15PM to 4:30PM.
