KATAPULT has been asked for bulletproof vests, helmets, smartphones, laptops and cameras. So, we've decided that we’re not only sending our new journalists money but also equipment - always with the request that they not put themselves in danger!

We even hired one person from Russia. Why? Because it is incredibly important. The whole war has one great hope: the Russian people. They must become loud and unpleasant, stand up against the military, against politics, against Putin. Russians are being deceived at the moment. They need to learn the truth. Free journalism is crucial in ensuring that this can happen. That's why we are hiring Russian journalists from now on and becoming a joint Ukrainian-Russian project! Of course, we will be checking every new person we hire very carefully. Get in touch!

As of today, we have a Twitter channel that our new KATAPULT employees will use as a platform. They will post reports and updates and upload videos and pictures.

Let's go!

Our costs are skyrocketing right now. We are turning our school, which was supposed to be a publishing house, into a refugee shelter and are now paying salaries for a lot more people. But the expenses don't matter! Because we have you, our readers. You have already funded over 1,000 subscriptions to KATAPULT Ukraine. What absolute madness! You are the ones who make it all possible. Thank you very much! If you still want to join, you can do so here:

We thought we were contributing a lot by cutting our salaries, but then you guys came in and added another 130,000 euros on top. You guys are blowing us away with your generosity! Tomorrow, we'll publish an article about all of the bizarre offers we've received, as well as information about our most recently received large donations. Transparency is a must! Our big KATAPULT family will never be the same again. Because this war concerns us all. And it's for that reason that KATAPULT goes to Ukraine - maximum help and maximum effort, we give what we can.

“Most people who I know left or are about to leave the country“

Last Thursday the KATAPULT had the chance to speak to a young woman in Russia about the situation inside the country. Originally it was planned as a video-interview. However the newest regulations in Russia which suppress the freedom of press and punish the spreading of information against the government are punishable with  a prison sentence of up to 15 years. That’s why the interview will now be published as completely anonymized text. The photos were sent by the interviewee. Her name and hometown has been verified by KATAPULT.
