For journalists operating in hostile environments, having the correct safety equipment can be the difference between life and death. Nowhere has this been clearer than in Ukraine, where personal protective equipment (PPE) has been in short supply, and where journalists have been gravely - and even fatally - injured throughout the country.

This brief guide is intended to provide user-friendly, practical guidance to journalists needing to quickly understand what personal protective equipment (PPE) can be moved from neighboring countries into Ukraine. This was co-produced by the Committee to Protect Journalists and the Thomson Reuters Foundation, with pro bono legal research provided by Allen & Overy, BAA Turcan Law and Hogan Lovells.
