Initiative summary:

EED provided rapid response funding to Liga.net - a distinguished independent Ukrainian media outlet that is valued for its strict adherence to high journalistic standards. In addition to hundreds of monthly news pieces, analyses, interviews and investigations, Liga.net contributes to the public’s awareness of healthcare issues within the context of the covid-19 pandemic. Liga.net has a wide national reach but is appreciated for its regional news sections, in particular in Ukraine’s eastern and southern regions that are most vulnerable to disinformation. During these turbulent economic times, EED funding is helping Liga.net to continue to operate while working to diversify its sources of funding.
