Who we are

We are Ukrainians, trying to survive russia’s worst attacks. We are sharing real photos and videos from the frontlines, so that the world can bear witness to the truth. Journalists frequently cannot be in the most dangerous hotspots of the war in Ukraine - the risks of injury and death are too high - so we collate the stories and images of war for journalists to use and for all to see.

We are providing this data and video free of charge to all, and in particular so that reporters around the globe can see and share what russia is really doing to us. There are many mothers among us, witnessing many battles up close, and we are sick of seeing our children, families, and neighbors being murdered before our very eyes.

We want to counter the russian government’s misinformation about what we are living through in this war. russia’s good people, and concerned people all around the world, need to see what is really happening on the ground in Ukraine. You need to see the atrocities being committed by the russian military here.
