In wartime conditions in Ukraine, professional support for foreign journalists becomes extremely important for creating high-quality reports. We tell you where to find unique support services to provide journalists with comfortable conditions for work and accurate information.


As we know, the term fixer refers to a person with local knowledge and contacts who helps foreign journalists or film crews to organise and support their work in an unfamiliar region. Fixers often provide assistance in organising interviews, providing translation, assisting with filming and providing access to places and people.


Their role is particularly important in regions where safety and local understanding are paramount to the success of foreign journalists. Fixers can also help with various problems related to organising logistics, supplying information and ensuring safety in difficult environments.

 

Where can journalists in Ukraine find a fixer?


VisitUkraine, a company specialising in various services for tourists, has launched a new product "Fixer+Driver". This is a complex service of accompanying representatives of foreign media who come to Ukraine to prepare reports.
