Latin American journalists interviewed Volodymyr Zelenskyi

Latin American journalists as part of the "Connecting Continents" project by the Public Interest Journalism Laboratory have conducted an interview with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.

During the course of seven days, they held several meetings dedicated to the most important topics that can help the global South audience better understand the nature of Russian aggression against Ukraine. This includes Russia's responsibility for war crimes and crimes against humanity in international courts, Ukrainian armed resistance to Russian aggression, the need for sanctions against Russia, how Russia caused a food crisis and its impact on Ukraine, and the anti-colonial nature of Ukrainian resistance.

Participants visited cities in the Kyiv region (May 29th) and the Kharkiv region (May 31st and June 1st), witnessed the scale of destruction, spoke with those affected by Russian aggression, with the families of those still in captivity, with military personnel and civilians, with farmers and government officials, in order to gain a deep understanding of the Russian war and the situation in Ukraine and to disseminate this knowledge and understanding to their audiences in their respective countries.
