    Special Kyiv Post Operation

    Special Kyiv Post Operation

    On 27 December, the Kyiv Post published [yet another] article with a sensationalist headline, misrepresenting the scale and nature of corruption in Ukraine. The headline was not well supported by the related interview.

    Dylan Carter, former Kyiv Post journalist (currently with Kyiv Independent), explains why the Kyiv Post of today is not the same outlet that had a sound reputation in the past. 

    The Kyiv Independent, one of Ukraine’s best English-language media outlets, was created by journalists who were fired from the Kyiv Post for defending editorial independence.

    This episode also covers:

    - How Ukraine's culture of vigorously calling up corruption is distinct - and can sometimes inflate its perception;

    - The progress Ukraine has made in terms of fighting corruption 

    - Ownership of the Kyiv Post;

    - Platforming of untrustworthy OSINT accounts by a Kyiv Post “correspondent”;

    - How disinformation campaigns conceal their objectives;

    - Subtle russian talking points, nuclear fear mongering, and how they appear in a much-changed journalistic outlet.

    The episode was co-hosted by Alona (@cryptodrftng on Twitter) and Madi (@MuKappa on Twitter).

    ON CORRUPTION

    The Kremlin pushes the idea that Ukraine is corrupt. This is wrong.

    Since the Revolution of Dignity in 2014, Ukraine has been making progress at an unprecedented rate in tackling high-level corruption through dedicated independent investigative, prosecutorial and judicial institutions.

    Despite examples of interference remaining (a lot of those are a result of russian meddling), the majority of corruption concerns are dealt with in accordance with law.

    Ukraine also has a very active and outspoken civil society.

    Сlick here for a  thread debunking the myths about corruption in Ukraine.

    The UK - Ukraine Relations w/ Yehor Brailian, Ministry of Defence Info Agency - ArmyInform

    The UK - Ukraine Relations w/ Yehor Brailian, Ministry of Defence Info Agency - ArmyInform

    Did you know that in 1996 Britain's then-Prime Minister John Major ate cucumbers at the Besarabka market during his visit to Kyiv? Or that Donetsk was founded by a Welsh man and originally called Hughesovka?

    In the fourth episode of Ukraine DAO Talks we covered the history of British-Ukrainian relations with Yehor Brailian, an international journalist incredibly knowledgeable in modern and contemporary world history, colonialism, and British history.

    Upon graduating from Faculty of History, Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University, where he defended a thesis on the colonial and postcolonial policy of Great Britain in the Caribbean (1930s – 1983), Yehor studied under the Erasmus + academic exchange program at the University of Constance. He is the winner of the Bohdan Solchanyk Travel Grant; Editor of the Toynbee Prize Foundation blog (2018-2020).

    Since October 2021, Yehor covers the international defence and security cooperation of Ukraine as a special correspondent of information agency of the Ukrainian MoD ArmyInform.

    Yehor's interests include Brexit, contemporary British history, Ukraine-NATO, climate, security, and hanging out in Ukraine DAO's Discord.

    Dr Benjamin Tallis - Ukraine DAO Talks about Germany

    Dr Benjamin Tallis - Ukraine DAO Talks about Germany

    In the third episode of Ukraine DAO Talks we spoke to Dr Benjamin Tallis. Benjamin is a researcher, advisor specialising in the geopolitics of (in)security in Europe and the author of a new book "To Ukraine With Love: Essays on Russia's War and Europe's Future" - click here to buy it.

    In this episode we speak about the history of the 20th century and the various features of the German culture - some of which seem to preventing Germans from taking more decisive action in Ukraine's support.

    "To Ukraine With Love" is a collection of essays that illuminate Russia’s war on Ukraine, European responses to it and what they mean for the continent’s future. They offer the interested general reader an expert guided tour through the European security landscape from December 2021 to December 2022. The book provides ways of making sense of the war, why it matters and what we can do about it. This collection will appeal to anyone interested in Ukraine, Russia’s war, Germany, Central & Eastern Europe, the EU or the future of our democracies – and who wants to gain expert insight in an accessible way. A percentage of royalties from the book sales are donated to Ukrainian causes.

    Dr. Benjamin Tallis is also research fellow at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) where he runs the 'Action Group Zeitenwende' project on Germany's security transformation. He previously worked for the EU on security missions in Ukraine and the Balkans.

    After his doctorate at the University of Manchester, he spent five years at the IIR Prague where he headed the Centre for European Security, edited the journal New Perspectives, contributed to the 2016 EU Global Strategy and, in 2017, advised on visa liberalisation for Ukraine. He was then a fellow at IFSH (Hamburg) and policy officer at the Centre of Excellence for Civilian Crisis Management.
