Activist group and journalists

Special Award for YanukovychLeaks
A special prize is being presented to the Ukrainian group YanukovychLeaks. This group, comprising activists and journalists, recovered thousands of documents which former President Janukowitsch had sunk in a pond on his property prior to fleeing the country. In presenting this award, the Board is honouring the outstanding achievement of salvaging this enormous number of documents, systematising and analysing them, and then publishing them on the YanukovychLeaks website, thereby exposing the system of corruption operated by the former President.

Laudatio: Christopher Walker
