Journalists on the frontline: "We want the world to know the truth."

Conveying the Horrors of War: Ukraine's Frontline Journalists

  • NHK's coverage of the operation of the Ukrainian public broadcaster, Suspilne
  • How do journalists stay fair and just when their homeland becomes a war zone?

How does life as a journalist change when your own country becomes a war zone? Even as Ukraine's capital Kyiv came under heavy shelling, the national public broadcaster Suspilne stayed on air, running operations out of a makeshift bunker studio. We follow Suspilne's reporters on the ground, working under pressure as they bear witness to the horrors of war and strive to keep the public informed. Yet how to maintain journalistic objectivity when the mindless death and destruction of war is right on your own doorstep?
