In Memory of Yana Sedova

On March 23, in Kyiv, we lost our dear colleague Yana Sedova. Yana worked as Free Russia Foundation Foreign Office podcast producer which she coauthored with Michael Weiss. 

Yana was a talented editor and world-class journalist. For over 10 years as she fought cancer, she produced a podcast “I and IT. How to beat cancer.” She was an unbelievably strong, kind, open person and an awesome professional. 

Yana was a true warrior, and we are convinced that if it were not for the war, she could have successfully combatted her illness for a long time. 

We express our condolences to all those who knew Yana, and to all those who were supported and inspired by her work.
