On Ukraine: with Andrey Kurkov, Robert Chandler, James Meek, Peter Pomerantsev, Ilya Kaminsky and Lyuba Yakimchuk

Andrey Kurkov, the celebrated Ukrainian author of Death and the Penguin and 18 other novels, joined us back in March for a fundraising event following the Russian invasion. He was joined by Robert Chandler, James Meek, Peter Pomerantsev, Ilya Kaminsky and Lyuba Yakimchuk.

The event raised £14,333 for the Pirogov First Volunteer Mobile Hospital, an NGO coordinating the provision of medical care by civilian doctors on the Ukrainian front line. If you would like to donate to help with their continuing work in Ukraine, you can do so here: https://www.medbat.org.ua/en/to-support-the-hospital/

Andrey Kurkov’s letters from Ukraine about his family’s flight from Kyiv, which became essential daily listening on the Today programme, have now been collected as part of his latest book Diary of an Invasion.
