"I am ready to die for this country if this will help it."
Georgy Gongadze

Georgy Gongadze was found mutilated and burnt in November 2000. An outspoken journalist and government critic, Gongadze was brutally murdered after he repeatedly criticised the Ukrainian government and Ukraine's President Leonid Kuchma. There is evidence that his murder might have been organised at the highest level of government by those who feared the exposure of his investigative reporting and his calls for transparency. He received the Integrity Award posthumously in 2001.
