Kyiv, October 30, 2018: Statement on the American University Research Project

Yesterday The Associated Press published an article about an American University (AU) research project on cybersecurity for U.S.-based nonprofit organizations that was coordinated with Internews.

As part of the project, AU students were provided only publicly available materials. The research was focused in the U.S.A. and did not concern international work.

At no point were the students employed by Internews, nor were they provided access to the organization’s work, systems, programs or files.

The students did not receive information about any of Internews’ international assistance programs or local partners in Ukraine.
