Ukraine.ua is called to be the official digital voice of Ukraine and to form a community of people who share the values of freedom. The platform shows the real Ukraine with its diverse manifestations and tells the remarkable stories of Ukrainians. The project also contributes to shaping the brand and perception of Ukraine among foreign audiences, creating new emotional connections with Ukraine and inspiring them by example.
The main task of Ukraine.ua during the full-scale war is to provide 24/7 verified information about the consequences of Russia's war against Ukraine for the country and the world; to spread stories of heroic struggle and resilience of the Ukrainian people; to explain the context of Ukraine's past, present and future to foreigners.
Since its launch, Ukraine.ua has gained the trust of millions of foreigners as a source of verified information about Ukraine. However, Ukraine.ua also helps to learn more about Ukraine — its opportunities, people, and superpowers. This platform gives a voice to Ukrainians and addresses the world on their behalf. This voice is sincere, informal, genuine, emotional, and very personalized. We communicate everything as it is, creating a human and open image — just like Ukrainians.
The great mission of Ukraine.ua is to unite. To unite people who believe in the idea of freedom as an absolute value and are ready to defend it.
Currently, Ukraine.ua unites a number of digital platforms -— the official website of Ukraine, Ukraine.ua, including the multilingual website war.ukraine.ua, which covers, documents, and archives the events of the full-scale war launched by the Russian Federation against Ukraine. Ukraine.ua also has official pages in English on Facebook, Instagram, Spotify, LinkedIn, TikTok, Twitter, and Youtube.
