Vilne Radio was founded in 2016 and is a source of independent, local news from one of the most unstable front-line regions in Donbas in eastern Ukraine.
The media outlet aims at bridging the information gap in the region, touching on issues linked to war and informing the locals and wider community in Ukraine and beyond. With EED support, Vilne Radio will work to provide credible and balanced news, engage people and make them feel more included and heard. The initiative will focus on both FM and online broadcasting.
