The Kyiv Files

Walter Stokman

The Ukrainian KGB archive, full of observations, is open to the public. How does one react when they discover the state has been watching them for years?

In Ukraine, the Soviet KGB archive, filled with observation reports, is now accessible to the public. What happens when you discover years of state surveillance? A Ukrainian woman, a Dutch spy, and a French tourist are confronted with their own file. It reveals a time when the paranoia of the Soviet regime penetrated deep into personal lives. Through the stories we are reminded of the importance of transparency, accountability, and the protection of individual rights in any society.
