What comes after a great start? The Kyiv Independent, which launched just shortly before Russia invaded Ukraine in 2022, is Ukraine’s fastest growing English-language media outlet. Last year in Perugia, the team members spoke about founding and running a media company during the Russian invasion. One year later, and one more year into the war, they encountered new challenges and are ready to share new insights. Come to meet the team, ask questions, and build connections for possible partnerships. 


Olga Rudenko, editor-in-chief; Daryna Shevchenko, CEO; Zakhar Protsiuk, chief operating officer; Toma Istomina, deputy chief editor; Oleksiy Sorokin, deputy chief editor; Yevhenia Motorevska, head of War Crimes Investigations Unit.
