A memorial plaque to the Ukrainian opposition journalist Georgy Gongadze has been unveiled on the facade of the building of the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine (Khreshchatyk St., 27-A), the Kyiv City State Administration reports.

The memorial plaque was made by the Department of Cultural Heritage Protection at the expense of the city budget.

Recall that 20 years ago, on the evening of September 16, 2000, Georgy Gongadze left work, but never showed up at home. The disappearance and murder of Georgy Gongadze caused a wide resonance in Ukraine and abroad. In December 2008, a monument to Georgy Gongadze and the journalists who died in the line of duty was erected in Kyiv in the park on Velyka Vasylkivska Street, 115-121.

Also, an avenue in Kyiv, streets in different cities of the country are named in his honor. In the Museum of News in Washington (USA), in the Hall of the Memorial to the Fallen Journalists, the name of Georgy Gongadze, is carved on the glass wall along with the names of other fallen Ukrainian journalists.
