Team

To deliver reliable news from Ukraine, the Kyiv Independent has brought together driven journalists, editors, photographers, videographers, managers and marketers.

We are a team of more than 30 people from six countries based in Kyiv. We all have different backgrounds but we are united by our shared belief in independent journalism.
