Editor-in-Chief

Yevhen Spirin

In 2012, I graduated from the Philosophy Faculty of the Volodymyr Dahl East Ukrainian National University with a master's degree. In time of the Revolution of Dignity, I became a journalist of the local Luhansk publication, traveled to Kyiv, and wrote news and short articles. I entered graduate school but got no degree: the war began, and my city was occupied. I moved to Kyiv and started writing news for the podrobnosti.ua website. In 18 months, I became a deputy chief editor of the Obozrevatel news website, then left it for the Hromadske media project. I worked live from the studio there, made reports from Donbas, and was the website editor. In 2018 I started working at Ukrainian Public Broadcaster and developed its digital platforms. But sitting in the office became boring, so I asked Babel to work with me, and they agreed. First I worked as a journalist, then as a deputy chief editor. After Babel's relaunch in 2020 I became its chief editor. But I still periodically have an urge to go to some distant places in a second class train car, to eat instant puree, sleep in a dugout and write about hermit woodcutters.
