Ep. 31 - A Ukrainian Soldier Convicted in Italy: What Went Wrong In the Markiv Case?

July 13, 2020
Host Volodymyr Yermolenko welcomes Olga Tokariuk, a Ukrainian independent journalist and documentary filmmaker, formerly of Hromadske.ua. She is now finalizing a documentary film “The Wrong Place” with her Italian colleagues. The film is about Vitaliy Markiv, a Ukrainian soldier with Italian citizenship who was sentenced to 24 years of prison by an Italian court for the alleged murder of Italian photojournalist Andrea Rochelli in May 2014, amid the most violent stage of the Donbas War. The story, however, is far more complicated than it seems.
