Joint appeal of the Ukrainian media groups, participants of the special TV marathon United News, to the international business and media community

On behalf of Ukrainian broadcasters, we plead for solidarity and support. On February 24, 2022, Russia unleashed its treacherous invasion of Ukraine and the largest war in Europe since WWII. On this fateful day, the biggest Ukrainian media combined forces to fight the enemy on a united information war front. For four weeks we have been broadcasting a special TV marathon we called United News. Together we bring the truth about the struggle of the Ukrainian nation and the Russian war crimes to millions of viewers in Ukraine and the world. United News are co-produced by the newsrooms of 1+1 Media, Media Group Ukraine, StarLightMedia, Inter Media Group, and state-owned Suspilne and Rada channels. An important direction is provision of foreign broadcasting of Ukrainian channels and their wide international distribution. Risking our lives, we bring news stories straight from the front line, from under artillery attacks, and bomb shelters. As the information front is just as important now. We applaud the support that the Ukrainian government provides for the state media, in particular to the creation of a telethon on ‘Suspilne’ and ‘Rada’. However we, the independent Ukrainian media, to keep fighting the good fight are in dire need of additional financial help. As our typical source of funding—advertising and content distribution—has become unavailable for us. Today to be able to hold our positions in the information warfare by creating the United News marathon we critically need your help. We are talking about costs that are directly related to the production of news. To help our newsrooms and our broadcast technicians, that are on the job 24/7. Our crews report live from the sites of active hostilities, the IT and engineers keep up uninterrupted 24-hour transmission despite regular shelling by the Russian air forces and artillery. Now we call upon our long-time advertiser and distributor partners, and the global media community for financial support of the independent Ukrainian media that stand in the way of Putin’s propaganda and Russian military aggression. You can make payments to the accounts of our partner, charitable foundation SMART ANGEL, which implements a related charitable program to support the media in time of war. The expense reports will be published on each media group’s website and on website support-unitednews.org.ua. Partners, colleagues, thank you for your support of Ukraine and independent Ukrainian media. Together with you, we are strong! Together with you, we will win!
