Overview

The collapse of the Soviet Union sparked a new era of media transformation in Ukraine. The censorship and isolation of state-owned Soviet media was replaced by a market-driven media environment. This environment presented new pressures and political turbulence, causing significant and rapid changes in journalistic culture and media practices. Anastasia Grynko discussed contemporary issues of journalist ethics and transparency, specifically how Ukrainian journalists interpret the various pressures and ethical challenges they confront in today’s media environment, and how they view their professional role in Ukraine.
