There is a war going on now. Media activity in Ukraine has never been so important. Our correspondents work tirelessly, journalists fight and fight on the information front - with the help of news, texts, posts on social networks, streams on YouTube, etc.

Now there is a war. Media activity in Ukraine has never been so important. Our correspondents work tirelessly. How to support mass media. We ask to support our mass media, which is now in a bad situation during military operations.
Journalists of editorial office work non-stop in order for our readers to learn the most up-to-date information in the period of war in Ukraine as quickly as possible.
Journalists fight around the clock on the information front - with the help of news, texts, posts on social networks, streams on YouTube, and more. With published only true and verified information. Journalists defend freedom of speech and democratic values.

Help keeps us going. So we will be able to directly help independent media, and our correspondents - to receive support in work. With true and verified information, we don't give invaders a chance in the newsroom of the battle. To resist any kind of propaganda, we need support. Everybody may contribute to the common struggle by supporting media.
