You're reading: Kyiv forest and journalist are under threat
Popular
on social media

It was a topic
that Fedoriv, a journalist at the STB Channel, was investigating for the last
four years. It concerned 4,000 hectares of the Bilychansky Forest in northwestern
Kyiv and the risk that it could be chopped down so that developers could build
there. The value of this massive plot of land, just near the city but quiet
and surrounded by the privacy that forests bring, has been estimated by
activists at $2 billion. The fight of activists and journalists to protect the
forest has proven tough and dangerous.

“I know you
have a lot of influential friends and acquaintances but they won’t be always
with you and your family,” the unknown man continued. “I hope you will sleep
well tonight.”

The next
day, Fedoriv wrote about this incident in her blog on the Ukrainska Pravda news
portal: “The tone and content of the conversation left me in no doubt that it
was a real threat to the life and health of my family and me.”
