Ukrainian Analyst Viktoriia Gosudarska of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe


In her interview with Anne Levine, Ukrainian Analyst Viktoriia Gosudarska reports from her work at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, where she was part of a team monitoring security since the invasion of the Crimea.

Gosudrarska describes the current state – or lack of – monitoring that is occurring in a war that is breaking recent conventions of war and safety for soldiers and civilians.

Anne Levine fact-checks reports given in other interviews with Ukraine 2 4 2 that, in occupied areas, Russians are checking for signs of Ukrainian patriotism such as tattoos or phone messages, and killing civilians who display these, that children are being threatened, abused, and abducted, and that Ukrainian men are being forced into service in the Russian Army.
