Austria provided $100,000 in support of Ukrainian journalists
The Austrian government has allocated $100,000 to support the work of independent journalists in Ukraine.
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Austria Alexander Schallenberg: “Protecting journalists has been a priority of Austria’s foreign policy for years. Media representatives risk their lives for the sake of free, independent, and objective coverage of conflict and crisis regions such as Ukraine. Our contribution strengthens their resilience.”
The $100,000 was donated by UNESCO to the Austrian federal government in March to “support the work of about 1,000 independent journalists in Ukraine.”
