UkraineWorld is an initiative aimed at bringing together key Ukrainian and international experts and journalists interested in Ukrainian issues, as well counteracting propaganda and disinformation. The initiative was proposed by Internews Ukraine in 2014 and supported by key Ukrainian media and expert organizations dealing with international audiences.
UkraineWorld functions as a communication network, mainly through daily exchange of information in the respective Google group.
