Safety handbook for journalists in Ukraine
The IFJ and the EFJ launched a handbook on the safety of journalists in Ukraine aimed at documenting the lessons and experiences of the Ukraine conflict for journalists.
It details the range and scope of restrictions on journalists’ rights experienced by both Ukrainian and Russian reporters during 2014 including freedom of movement, detentions, threats, assaults and deaths. The handbook includes interviews of journalists and provides advice from journalists who went through the safety training programmes held by the IFJ, IMTUU and NUJU.
The handbook was prepared by IFJ affiliates, the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine (NUJU), the Independent Media Trade Union of Ukraine (IMTUU) and the Russian Union of Journalists (RUJ) in a joint IFJ/EFJ initiative.
