AUP continues to create a Memorial to journalists killed in the war


Greetings, friends!

As you know, in 2022, with the support of its long-term partner, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, the AUP created a physical memorial dedicated to the memory of the fallen media workers in the Russian-Ukrainian war.

The project is called "Carriers of Memory. Fallen Journalists - 2022". The memorial includes 21 life stories of journalists whose lives were taken by the full-scale invasion. More details are on this landing page:

What are we talking about?

This year we received support to continue this important social project.

Currently, the ULA is working on 15 more obituary essays. In total, the project will include 35 stories, and its length will exceed 32 meters. We want the public to understand that journalists play an equally important mission in confronting the aggressor.

The media workers primarily document Ukrainian tragedies and disseminate them to a global audience. Photos, texts, and investigations taken from the war zones are distributed to the most remote corners of the world, and undoubtedly touch the hearts of those who care.

Ukraine should be talked about, not forgotten, and, if possible, supported in any contact: moral, material, humanitarian, and informational.

Everyone should be proud of those heroes who died, and above all, we should know them by sight. This is the idea that guides the AUP and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom in their work on the joint project.

As of today, the number of dead journalists is more than 63.

The memorial is also available online, which can be found here:

The project was implemented by the Academy of Ukrainian Press (AUP) with the support of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, the German Foreign Office and Civil Society Cooperation, in partnership with the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine.
