The Price of the Word

"The Price of the Words" is an informational campaign launched in September 2020 by the Lviv Media Forum in collaboration with the Georgiy Gongadze Award to remind civil society and the audience of Ukrainian media about the cost that journalists pay for the opportunity to speak the truth.

The campaign ambassadors are: Andriy Kulykov, Myroslava Barchuk, Bryan Bonner, Akhtem Seitablaiev, Tetiana Danilenko, Larisa Denysenko, and Myroslava Gongadze.

The campaign kicked off with an online discussion titled "The Price of the Words: The Mission of a Journalist in the Struggle for Truth," which took place during the 27th Lviv International BookForum.

Participants in the event included Myroslava Gongadze, Zurab Alasania, Vakhtang Kipiani, and Igor Balinsky. They discussed the cost of truth, the importance of unity within the media community, and the personal choice to go against the system.
