  • BAJ joined the action in memory of journalists who died in the war in Ukraine

    On February 24 in Brussels, representatives of various international organizations were photographed with posters bearing the names of journalists killed in the war in Ukraine.

    The action was attend­ed by Deputy Chair of the Belaru­sian Asso­ci­a­tion of Jour­nal­ists Barys Haret­s­ki. He hon­ored the mem­o­ry of Ukrain­ian cam­era­man Yevge­ny Sakun.

    49-year-old Evge­ny Sakun worked for the Ukrain­ian TV chan­nel LIVE. On March 1, 2022, he cov­ered the Russ­ian inva­sion of Ukraine and died under fire from Russ­ian troops near the Kyiv TV tow­er. The body of the jour­nal­ist was iden­ti­fied by a press card.

    “The war in Ukraine is a ter­ri­ble crime of Rus­sia. The Belaru­sian peo­ple and Belaru­sian jour­nal­ists are in full sol­i­dar­i­ty with the Ukraini­ans and admire the courage and pro­fes­sion­al­ism of their Ukrain­ian col­leagues. Every per­son who suf­fered and died in this war is impor­tant to us. We can­not for­get this tragedy! Every day we stand togeth­er with the Ukrain­ian peo­ple and Ukrain­ian col­leagues,” said Barys Haret­s­ki.
