Applications for accreditation in the ATO area
Step 1: Accreditation at the Security Service of Ukraine. The media representative that wasn’t previously accredited by the SBU should send an official letter (on a letterhead paper of the media organization) to the Security Service of Ukraine with a request to accredit certain employees of that organization. The data that need to be mentioned in the letter: surnames, names and patronymics, positions of the media representatives, their contact phone numbers, as well as term of the assignment. The letter should be signed by the head of the media organization and certified with a seal. Copies of passports (1-2 pages) of the media representatives to be accredited and their press cards should be attached to the letter.
To speed up the accreditation process electronic copies of the mentioned documents can be sent to the e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
