The Bearing Witness: Documenting War Crimes in Mariupol, Ukraine

New York (USA)


Photo exhibition in association with the upcoming FRONTLINE PBS and Associated Press. The exhibition featured the works of Ukrainian documentarians, members of the UAPP and Pulitzer Prize laureates – Mstyslav Chernov and Yevhen Maloletka.


«There were no funerals. There were no public gatherings to honor those who died during Russia's relentless attacks on the port city of Mariupol, which became a symbol of Ukraine's fierce resistance. Only fraternal graves spoke of the city under siege».


The world would not have seen any of this if not for the team of Associated Press journalists, Mstyslav Chernov and Evgeniy Maloletka, who were in the city when the invasion began. They stayed in Mariupol even after it became one of the most dangerous places on earth. For over two weeks, they we're the only international media in the city and the only journalists able to transmit video and photos to the outside world.


Thanks to their work, the world learned about the bloody atrocities committed by the Russians when they captured the city, including the attack on the Mariupol maternity hospital, which became a symbol of the cruelty of this war.
