This week, we’re joined by investigative journalist Mustafa Nayyem, former Deputy Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, who is credited as catalyzing the Maidan protest in Kyiv in 2013 with his fierce defense of open journalism, democracy, freedom, and famous call to action stating, “Likes don’t count.” Nayyem was elected to the Ukrainian Rada Parliament in 2014 and in 2021 appointed as Deputy Minister of Infrastructure and Transport. He is currently in Kyiv, actively engaged in the defense against Russia.
