Ukrinform: Ukraine marks Remembrance Day for journalists today

Ukrinform: Ukraine marks Remembrance Day for journalists today

Remembrance Day for Ukrainian journalists, which was established in 2007 at the initiative of the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine is being marked today. 

Its aim is to honour the memory of journalists who passed away in the past few decades - was killed, died under mysterious circumstances or forced to commit suicide.

This year's Remembrance Day coincides with the day of memory of the founder of Ukrayinska Pravda, Heorhiy Gongadze, who was murdered and kidnapped on Sept. 16, 2000.

Most crimes against journalists remain unsolved, and in the best cases only those who carried them out and not those who ordered themhave been discovered.

 Some of these cases are sensational, loud, the names of slain journalists are well known and are discussed all the time. Others may be mentioned in a general report but then their names disappear. Remembrance Day for Ukrainian journalists is the opportunity to mention all of them.
