Make Sense. Hub

We created two «Eastern Media Hub», which located in Slovyansk (Donetsk region) and in the city of Chernivtsi (Chernivtsi region) because of the fight against russian disinformation, narratives, and to counter fake news.


Our hub in Sloviansk is a workspace for national and foreign journalists who make some materials about East of Ukraine. International partners have the opportunity to improve the speed of publication of materials about the situation in Donbas, as well as increase their quantity. In our hub journalists can use video and photo equipment for shooting videos and creating photographs, recording podcasts, video editing, and podcast editing.



The Eastern Media Hub in Chernivtsi is a meeting place for national and international journalists, activists. Here we have online and offline meetings with our colleagues who are jourmalists from various cities in Ukraine and with international partners.
