IMI representative organizes a hub for journalists in Kropyvnytsky
At the end of June, a hub for journalists coordinated by Pavlo Lisnychenko, IMI representative in Kirovohrad region, opened in Kropyvnytsky.
From now on, journalists from the Kirovohrad region and other regions have a space where they can work, rest, and get protective equipment – all free of charge.
Currently, the hub has fully equipped workplaces, free Wi-Fi access, and a space where you can rest and, if necessary, spend the night.
In addition, with the support of IMI and international donors, it was possible to collect several sets of equipment that can be used by journalists going to the front-line cities or in the area near the front line to film.
"We have bulletproof vests, helmets, knee pads, glasses, first aid kits, bandages, power banks, non-trackable cell phones. Basically everything that a journalist needs to work and protect themselves in the current circumstances. You can get these things from us, use them, return them to the hub and after the filming. In addition, in the hub itself we plan to equip a place for recording streams, an audio recording room for podcasters and those who work with video, and, if we are lucky, we will have some good laptops for editing," said Pavlo Lisnychenko.
