Dear Ukrainian colleagues,  As the war continues in your country, you keep on working to keep your citizens informed, to protect them from lies and disinformation and to help them overcome the horrors of the ruthless attack on your democracy. We, your colleagues in Finland think of you every day, admiring your courage and your persistence as you work sometimes without pay or without protection, sometimes at the cost of your lives.  Ukrainian journalists have showed everyone what freedom of speech means. Journalism is never just a business – it brings a light to the darkness as it stands for truth even when the task seems impossible.  Your future is our future.   Union of Journalists in Finland is providing 15 000 euro to support Ukraine’s journalists and the country’s crucially important news media.
