  • Journalists in the War Zone: BAJ and LUJ will open an exhibition in Vilnius

    On February 24, the exhibition Ukraine: Journalists in the War Zone will open at the Vilnius train station. It will showcase the work of reporters during Russia’s full-scale attack on Ukraine and pay tribute to colleagues who lost their lives covering the war.

    The photographs collected as part of the exhibition Ukraine: Journalists in the War Zone showcase the work of media professionals in various cities and regions of the country. The space will feature 27 photographs, including works by renowned Ukrainian and foreign photographers, such as Pulitzer Prize and World Press Photo winner Evgeniy Maloletka, Associated Press photographer Efrem Lukatsky, and well-known Ukrainian war photographers Kostiantyn and Vlada Liberov, Yan Dobronosov, Dmytro Klyuchko, and Andrey Andriyenko.

    The exhibition was first organized last autumn by the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine. With the support of the European Federation of Journalists, it has already visited Brussels and Paris.

    On the second anniversary of the full-scale invasion, the Belarusian Association of Journalists, now located in Vilnius, and the Lithuanian Union of Journalists established the photo exhibition in the hall of the Vilnius train station.

     

    — “The war waged by Russia against Ukraine is an international crime and atrocity. In addition to the many soldiers who have lost their lives, thousands of civilians, including women and children, have also fallen victim to the ongoing violent attacks. Dozens of Ukrainian and international media representatives, who have bravely covered this war, have also been killed by Russian assailants. Throughout the war, we have shown solidarity with and support for our Ukrainian colleagues. On the second anniversary of the full-scale invasion, we want to highlight the brave and selfless work of our Ukrainian colleagues,” emphasized BAJ Chairman Andrei Bastunets.

    “To me, Ukraine and its people are a symbol of freedom and courage. This should be evident to everyone, especially journalists. We now must defend Ukraine with all our might,” stated Dainius Radzevičius, chairman of the Lithuanian Union of Journalists.

    The Belarusian Association of Journalists and the Lithuanian Union of Journalists invite journalists and the public to an exhibition opening on February 24 at 12:00 in the hall of Vilnius train station. The exhibition will be available for visitors for two weeks.
