Vitaliy Sych

Vitaly Sych is a Ukrainian journalist. He recently launched the weekly Novoye Vremya (“New Times”) to continue the tradition of hard-hitting independent reporting in Ukraine, as well as a news site. From 2003 to 2013, Sych was chief editor of the weekly magazine Korrespondent, the first media to publish photos of former president Viktor Yanukovych’s mansion, which became a symbol of the corrupt regime. He had to leave Korrespondent after businessmen close to Yanukovych purchased the magazine. Sych began his career at the Kyiv Post, where in five years he went from editorial assistant to political reporter to editor. [+]
