Editor-in-chief of Ukrayinska Pravda
Sevhil Musaieva is a Ukrainian journalist from Crimea currently serving as editor-in-chief of the online newspaper called “Ukrayinska Pravda”. With her primary focuses being news on politics and social issues, Sevhil also manages the group of websites run by the newspaper covering other areas such as economy, the political history of Ukraine and much more.
Having started her career as a journalist in 2007, Sevhil spent the following five years as a prominent Ukrainian business reporter, specializing in oligarchy-related investigations, as well as reporting on corruption within the oil and gas industry. She worked as a journalist for several agencies, newspapers and publications, including some major ones, like Forbes Ukraine. When the revolution started in Ukraine in 2014, she worked with a feed page in a social network, which she later launched as a standalone online media project, taking the role of chief editor.
An active charity worker, Sevhil was involved in many projects and events, one of which was initiating a project aimed at providing those affected by the political crisis in Crimea with trustworthy information and assisting them with matters of safety and resettlement.
Last year, Sevgil co-authored a book about the leader of the Crimean Tatar people. The inspiration behind writing it was his unbreakable personality, and the intention was to show that prosperity of the motherland was always worth fighting for.
Sevhil is a five-time winner of the “Presszvanie,” a prize given to the best economic journalists in Ukraine. Additionally, Sevhil has been awarded the Anthony Moskalenko Memorial Award for “contribution to the development of Ukrainian journalism.”
