How (not) to cover the war.
Challenges, mistakes, story ideas when covering a conflict.
Everything changed on February 24th. Stories as we knew them are being overwritten. Question is – where do we go from now?
To answer this, we have been in the city of Rzeszów, one hour from the Ukrainian border. Together we will think how (not) to cover the war. About challenges, mistakes, story ideas when covering a conflict and its impact.As Ukraine defends itself against Russian invasion, whole Europe finds itself in a place where values are tested, commitment required and repercussions of this war felt not only in Bucha but on a different level in Tbilisi, Madrid, London or Vilnius. Russia has been fighting its misinformation war with Europe for years to build up chaos and allow itself to justify their actions. Journalism has to finally catch up.
