This was followed by the departure of Vitaly Sich, the now former chief editor of Korrespondent.
It’s no great feat to stick to principles when times are good. Taking the high road is only worth something when it is the more difficult choice.
Whether or not we get a full picture of what events and intrigues took place in those newsrooms, those who have chosen exile to comfort deserve credit: they are taking their skills of reporting insightful and objective stories in a market that has little place for them.
For 18 years now, in good times and bad, the Kyiv Post has abided by such principles. They can be seen in our motto: Independence, Community, Trust. Our journalists have always doggedly pursued the truth, no matter the potential fallout. That’s because we believe this is what’s best for our brand, and that’s it is the only way to do journalism. I hope that Kyiv Post continues to be a place where all the journalists with the necessary talent and values can find work, and if necessary – refuge.
