NUJ members at RTÉ gathered in Dublin on March 3 to express solidarity with the people of Ukraine and to highlight the plight of media workers under attack from Russia.

The NUJ has asked the Department of Foreign Affairs to provide practical assistance to Ukraine journalists through the IFJ.

The IFJ thanks the NUJ and all its members for its amazing solidarity with journalists under threat in Ukraine – and with the national Union of Journalists of Ukraine (NUJU) and Independent Media Trade Union of Ukraine (IMTUU) following the invasion by Russian troops.
