Two defenders of the human rights and two war correspondents, with first hand experience from the war zone will tell about myths and facts, analyze the situation and explain how conflict and propaganda affects the societies in Russia and Ukraine.

Ella Polyakova, leader of Soldiers’ Mothers of St. Petersburg.
Anastasia Stanko, journalist og producer at the Ukrainian Hromadske TV, war correspondents in Eastern Ukraine.

Moderator is Christian Borch


The debate is in collaboration with the Norwegian Helsinki Committee, and will be in Russian and Norwegian with simultaneous interpretation.
