About us

UkraineWorld is an English-language multimedia project about Ukraine run by the NGO Internews Ukraine. Our team produces articles, podcasts, video explainers, reports, analysis, and books about Ukraine in English and other languages. We focus on explaining Ukraine and its culture, covering the most important developments in and around the country, as well as counteracting anti-Western propaganda and disinformation.

UkraineWorld experts have been quoted by high-profile foreign media outlets such as The New York Times, Financial Times, Le Monde, Atlantic Council, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, and FRANCE 24.

Our organization regularly holds Ukraine-focused discussions for international audiences to further the exchange of ideas and information between Ukrainian and international organizations, think tanks, and media.

We have also cultivated a network of over 300 international journalists and experts focusing on Ukraine in order to bring together key actors focused on Ukrainian issues.


Day-to-day communication is handled within a google-group in which we exchange ideas and information, and implement some joint initiatives. The international actors participating in this group can receive first-hand information about Ukraine from Ukrainian competent experts and journalists. They also can get on-demand information and consultation if issues arise in their Ukraine-focused work.

The UkraineWorld project emerged from a volunteer initiative helping international journalists during the Euromaidan Revolution of 2013-2014. Today it operates thanks to the support by Internews Network (programme U-Media funded by USAID), the International Renaissance Foundation, the Ukrainian Institute, the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation, the NATO Centre in Ukraine, and other donors.
