One of the biggest news websites in Ukraine needs support to keep fighting on information front
During wartime Ukrainian media play an extremely important role for ensuring the security of the country - and of the whole civilized world. It's now more important than ever to supply truthful and objective news on current developments in Ukraine and combat countless fakes generated by Russian propaganda. That’s what OBOZREVATEL keeps doing.
OBOZREVATEL is one of the oldest and the most popular independent informational websites of Ukraine, founded in 2001. Nowadays about 1.5 million users visit us every day searching for news, articles, interviews, analytics and reviews - we feel responsible for each of them.
We really are huge. Our readers make a third of Ukraine's population. And we need some money to keep fighting!
Our journalists, news editors, administrative and IT staff work around the clock to:
Find, analyze, verify and enhance information about the war in Ukraine
Report important news and messages by official authorities promptly to the audience
Communicate with the best experts in all fields to create competent texts
Directly collect information from different corners of the country
Oppose Russia’s massive propaganda
Help volunteers, charitable foundations, Ukrainian business to deliver their information to the public
Support the morale of Ukrainians and their faith in Victory
Fight cyberattacks and provide technical support to the website
Why do we seek financial support
The Russian invasion has reduced the activity of advertisers in Ukrainian media. As a result, we’ve faced a lack of advertising and inability to pay salaries to both those members of the team who work and those who cannot work due to devastating circumstances.
Thus, our work has now become almost voluntary. We feel our high responsibility to our staff and to the whole society, so we’ll do our best to fu lfil the obligations and support the people as long as we can. But our resources are limited, so now we’re seeking financial aid. This aid can help us to fulfill our mission completely and make Ukraine closer to the Victory.
All 150 members of our team are real heroes and patriots of their country.
During the wartime we work remotely, in different parts of Ukraine or in the status of refugees abroad. Some of us are periodically deprived of the opportunity to work due to severe conditions, lack of mobile connection or internet, so other members of the staff work twice as much to keep the website alive.
Some of us go to the hotspots at the risk of their own lives .
Given the financial problems, we do it all on a volunteer basis, in fact.
But we want so much to live in Ukraine - free, independent, strong and prosperous Ukraine - that we stay strong and keep doing our job.
Your donations can work wonders and help us to fulfill our mission completely!
Lesia Gasych, Editor in Chief
