Evgeniy Maloletka is a Ukrainian war photographer, journalist and filmmaker, who has been covering the war in Ukraine since 2014.
He has also covered the Euromaidan Revolution, the protests in Belarus, the Nagorno-Karabakh war and the COVID-19 pandemic in Ukraine.
His work was published in numerous prominent media: TIME, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Der Spiegel, Newsweek, The Independent, El Pais, The Guardian, The Telegraph and others.
In February and March 2022, during the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Associated Press staff Mstyslav Chernov and Evgeniy Maloletka, stayed in Mariupol, which was encircled by the Russian troops, under siege, and extensively bombed, whereas the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Defense Ministry claimed that Russia only targets military installations.
They were among the few journalists in Mariupol during that period, and their photographs were extensively used by Western media to cover the situation. On 11 March they were in a hospital taking photos when they were taken out of the city with the assistance of Ukrainian soldiers.
They managed to escape from Mariupol unharmed.
Evgeniy Maloletka writes: ”For me as a Ukrainian it is important to show the world what is really happening on the ground. We report what we see: the truth and facts, and portray the persistence and courage of ordinary Ukrainians.”
