Investigative Reporter Wins a Prestigious US Democracy Award-2017
8 June – In Ukraine, we have been supporting reporters and media pushing for anti-corruption reform.

It’s great to see this support getting proper recognition as Denys Bihus, Nashi Groshi TV presenter and Internews’ long-time partner, received a Democracy Award-2017 from the National Endowment for Democracy in the USA, along other anti-corruption activists from Angola, Afghanistan, Guatemala and Malaysia.
