Must Read

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and the Institute of Mass Information (IMI) have published a report on the impact of information warfare in Ukraine in the year following Russia’s invasion in 2022.  

At least 12,000 Ukrainian and foreign journalists have been accredited to cover the conflict, with many being targeted by Russian forces. Eight journalists were killed and 26 were deliberately targeted by gunfire or artillery fire during the first six months of the war. To support journalism and combat propaganda, RSF created the Press Freedom Centre in Lviv and Kyiv, which has provided protective equipment to almost 750 journalists. Generators and power supply equipment were provided to 91 media outlets, and 28 independent Ukrainian media outlets have received assistance grants. Safety guides for journalists have been distributed, and 288 journalists have received training. RSF has provided financial assistance to 129 Ukrainian journalists and plans to continue doing so in 2023. A survey conducted by IMI revealed that 90% of Ukrainian journalists reported experiencing clinical symptoms of stress.
