These illustrations were commissioned to reflect the
social and political impacts of radical groups in Ukraine

Ukraine is a country with a vibrant civil society and media landscape, political institutions that are growing in strength and capacity, and a rapidly growing and diversifying economy. Yet, it is also a country struggling with a radical and violent subset of society, one that is prepared to aggressively enforce an identity that excludes many people.

This initiative seeks to fill in knowledge gaps about these dynamics by providing high-quality reporting and analysis on the groups and individuals who pose a serious threat to democratic development and pluralism in Ukraine due to their use or support of extremist violence.

Learn more about this initiative by reading About the Initiative, or by reading our Thematic Analysis, which dig into key issues in detail, and Dossiers, which report on the history and role of organizations and individuals. Contact us with any questions or feedback.
