PRAGUE - Local independent journalism, the most important source of truth in times of war, is today literally hanging by a thread not only in Ukraine but also in Russia and Belarus.

To provide immediate support to local journalists working under the most extreme pressure, we – a group of over 25 media support organizations and media outlets with deep experience across the region – are launching the Eastern European Independent Journalist Fund. The fund will pay for stories produced by Ukrainian, Belarusian, and Russian journalists who are reporting the truth on the war despite the enormous risks. The fund will serve as a lifeline to allow them to stay on the job even as their normal income plummets or vanishes, the direct consequence of living and working in or near a war zone.
