„You‘ ll never walk alone“ -so was called the conference for journalists organised by Netzwerk Recherche. In the NDR Building in Hamburg geather around 600 journalists from all over Germany to share their experiences and discuss actual topics around the world. One of the topics which was hotly debated at the conference was Ukrainian conflict. Invited to participate in the discussion ware Natascha Fiebrig from Ukrainian TV Channel ‘1+1,’ Jörg Eigendorf from ‘Welt’ , Uwe Klussman from ‘Spiegel’ and Katja Gloger from ‘Stern’.
Moderation was by Volker Weichsel publisher from ‘Eastern Europe’. Each of them had different interpretation of events in Ukraine.
For example, Uwe Klussman compared Ukrainian crises with War in Chechnya, which led to laughter of the audience. It was contrary to what Jörg Eigendorf said, as he was not so long ago in Kiev and in the East and he saw the real situation in Ukraine.
For Katja Gloger, however, the Ukraine crisis is above all a story about German media coverage. Her conclusion was that Ukraine have the problems inside the country and in German talk shows Ukrainians themselves were come too little to speak.
At this point, Natascha Fiebrig concidered that german media unfortunatly continued to speak propohandy stamps and completely are detached from the Ukrainian reality.
Their talk about War in Ukraine you can hear down.
