About the project
Ukraine War Archive is a non-profit information platform which stores all forms of
digital materials collected during Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. We organise
all the evidence in our database to preserve history and fairly represent events in
legal and public discourse.
Why it is important
Russia’s war against Ukraine is now the most well-documented act of military aggression
in history. To make these first-hand records available for use in criminal courts,
investigative journalism, research, and art, they must be collected and stored
professionally. That’s why the Archive uses state of the art systematisation to ensure
secure storage and the effective search of materials.
We collect materials that cover civilian resistance against the Russian army, as well as
the destruction, violence and other crimes committed in Ukraine by the aggressor. We
also store materials about the realities of everyday life for Ukrainians during wartime,
including evacuations, hiding in bomb shelters, and other such experiences.
Ukraine War Archive also preserves interviews with eye-witnesses to the events of war,
recorded by our team. We are always looking for people willing to tell us their own war
stories in person. If your home was damaged or looted by Russian forces, if you have had
to evacuate your hometown due to shelling, or if violence against civilians has been
committed in front of you then please contact us. We are working to ensure that the
testimonies collected in interviews can be used in court to punish perpetrators.
