WASHINGTON—The Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, also known as the Helsinki Commission, today announced the following online staff briefing:
DIVERSE VOICES REPORTING FROM UKRAINE
Wednesday, April 20, 2022
Journalists in Ukraine risk their lives daily to report the reality of war. Credible, on-the-ground reporting has documented war crimes committed by Russian forces and the continued bombardment of Ukrainian cities, targeting civilians and critical infrastructure and displacing millions. So far, at least seven journalists have been killed, and others injured, while covering Russia’s genocidal war against the people of Ukraine.
This briefing will convene journalists currently in Ukraine, whose diverse backgrounds bring important perspectives on the war. The discussion will center on their personal experiences and those of individual Ukrainians they have encountered during the war.
The following panelists are scheduled to participate:
- Oz Katerji, Freelance conflict journalist
- Asami Terajima, Journalist, Kyiv Independent
- Olga Tokariuk, Independent journalist based in Ukraine; Non-Resident Fellow, CEPA
