A new book tells the fascinating story of Gareth Jones, a pioneering investigative journalist, who was murdered in Mongolia in 1935, at the age of 29.
Gareth Jones is a national hero in Ukraine for being the first reporter to reveal the truth about the Holodomor – the 1932-33 genocide inflicted on Ukraine by the Soviet Union, which killed more than four million people.
