The exhibition The War Is Not Over Yet is a show of solidarity with Ukrainian media workers – the men and women who fight for the truth, risking their own lives. Some drop their professional activities and join the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Some are actively fighting on the information front, recording the course of the war and telling the truth about it to the world.
Thanks to Ukrainian journalists, photographers, camerapeople and fixers, the international community learns the news from the frontline and sees evidence of russian war crimes.
The event is held with the support of: PEN Ukraine, Institute of Mass Information, ZMINA Human Rights Center, National Museum of the Revolution of Dignity, Lviv Media Forum, Heorhiy Gongadze Award, and the Odesa City Council.
Help us be even more cool!
