56 journalists killed in Ukraine due to Russian full-scale armed aggression
As World Press Freedom Day is marked on May 3, hundreds of brave journalists and media workers risk their lives in Ukraine daily to keep people informed about Russia’s full-scale brutal aggression against Ukraine.
The Ukrainian Institute of Mass Information has recorded over 500 crimes committed by Russians against Ukrainian journalists and media for over a year of the full-scale invasion.
The Russian war has killed 56 Ukrainian media workers — nine of them killed while carrying out their professional duties. It is an unprecedented number. Also, at least 21 journalists were kidnapped by Russians, and another 14 went missing throughout the year of the large-scale war.
