About us

Читати українською

Texty.org.ua is an independent media founded by Anatoliy Bondarenko and Roman Kulchynsky in 2010.

We create data journalism projects and work in traditional journalistic genres ranging from lengthy reportage to short messages. We have a Ukrainian view of the world. We try to study the problem we are writing about as much as possible and to show what is happening, not simply publishing different points of view. Read more about our principles here (in Ukrainian).
