The Gongadze Prize founders have established [Rec]uiem, a platform in memory of journalists killed in Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine.

The page contains information about 48 journalists who have been killed since Russia started its full-scale invasion on Feb. 24, 2022.

Among them are the stories of eight Ukrainian and foreign media representatives killed while reporting in Ukraine. They also include the stories of those who became victims of Russian attacks on cities, those who died at the hands of the Russian army in Russian-occupied cities, and those who died in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The project was developed by the teams of the Gongadze Prize and PEN Ukraine in partnership with the Institute of Mass Information.

Specifically for the [Rec]uiem memory platform, authors Valeriia Buniak, Diana Deliurman, Iryna Rodina, Alyona Savchuk, Maksym Sytnikov, and Marharyta Tulup collected the stories of the victims by talking to their relatives and colleagues, as well as researching materials from open sources.

The [Rec]uiem memory platform serves as a continuation of a series of photo exhibitions that PEN Ukraine and its partners have been organizing in different cities of Ukraine since March 2022.
