"Two Years Later: Sustaining Critical Coverage of Russia’s War on Ukraine" webinar


Saturday, February 24, 2024, marks two years since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Experts estimate casualties from the war have surpassed half a million. As the war drags on, the death toll rises, and the Ukrainian resistance digs in, public attention has waned with war fatigue spreading across the West.

Join Pulitzer Center grantees David Kortava, Simon Ostrovsky, and Kristina Zeleniuk at a webinar on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, at 1pm EST for a conversation on enduring coverage of Ukraine. Panelists will discuss their reporting on the war and explore where coverage needs to focus next, including sanctions enforcements, aid policies, and the persecution of religious minorities in occupied areas.


  • David Kortava is an editor at Foreign Affairs. Kortava’s project, In the Filtration Camps, illuminates the horrors of Russian filtration camps, where Ukrainian civilians are being sequestered—sometimes indefinitely. 
  • Simon Ostrovsky is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and investigative journalist best known for his coverage of the 2014 Crimea crisis and the war in eastern Ukraine for VICE News. Ostrovsky’s extensive coverage of the war investigates weapon supply chains and evidence of Russian war crimes and atrocities against Ukrainian civilians. 
  • Kristina Zeleniuk has worked as a journalist for over 10 years, writing mainly about the EU, NATO, Russia, crimes of Vladimir Putin’s regime, and the war in Ukraine. Zeleniuk’s project, NATO After Putin’s War: A Chance for a New Breath or the Beginning of 'Death,'  explores NATO’s role in the world order and preventing future conflicts.  

Pulitzer Center Senior Editor Tom Hundley will moderate the conversation, which will be followed by an audience Q&A. The webinar is free and open to the public; registration is required.

The Pulitzer Center's Peace and Conflict initiatives support journalism and audience engagement on the roots of conflict and its connections with many underreported global issues, from mass migration and authoritarianism to gender violence and the struggle over natural resources.
