Ukraine's Euromaidan: Broadcasting through Information Wars with Hromadske Radio

How can you counteract an information war? Hromadske Radio, Public Radio Ukraine, decided to provide accurate and objective information to audiences - free of state and corporate censorship and any kind of manipulation. They broadcasted throughout Ukraine's Euromaidan, and beyond. This book brings together a series of English language reports on the Ukraine crisis first broadcast on Hromadske Radio between 3 February 2014 and 7 August 2015. Collected and transcribed here, they offer a kaleidoscopic chronicle of events in Ukraine. Bookending the reports, purpose written introduction and conclusion sections contextualize the independent radio project within the larger picture of Ukraine's media and political developments - both before the Euromaidan and in its dramatic aftermath. The book also features a preface by David R. Marples.
