KYIV - Internews Ukraine (IUA) team has completed the implementation of the a project aimed to increase the awareness of the public and decision-makers in Ukraine and Europe about ecological issues emerging as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Through a short-term training program and Small grant program, the IUA team facilitated the coverage of warfare ecology issues by Ukrainian journalists, partly leaning on the investigative genre and solution-based journalism.

As a result of this Program, 50 regional journalists participated in the training sessions and 25 materials were produced and published, drawing much-needed attention to ecological issues in Ukraine during the war. These materials contributed to creating a base for future investigations of the effects of Russia’s invasion on the environment of Ukraine.
