A group of journalists has been working together in an unusually open collective to create www.yanukovychleaks.org since roughly 17,000 documents were pulled from the bottom of a private lake on Yanukovych’s palatial Mezhyhirya estate.

For those interested in getting involved:
Considering the plethora of potential stories, I was curious what in particular Dymitro might pursue. One of which is the story of the $15 million furniture market research contract between two apparently Yanukovych-related firms…
YanukovychLeaks is a fascinating example of an intentionally Open project bent on social justice. Follow, explore, learn more, research or contribute at www.yanukovychleaks.org – that’s what it’s there for.
