Founded in January 2022 in Berlin, Vitsche emerged driven by the imminent threat of russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Our vision: a Ukraine free, secure, and thriving as a valued EU member. We confront russian disinformation, amplifying Ukrainian voices. Embracing the importance of Ukrainian subjectivity, we advance a decolonial perspective on Ukraine’s history, forging a path to a more just future.

Addressing urgent needs of Ukraine is a core commitment, campaigning for support to alleviate the hardships of the russian war. In Germany, we strengthen the Ukrainian community. With cultural and educational events, we foster unity and understanding, bridging diverse backgrounds.

A safe, democratic Ukraine ensures Europe’s stability and security. Join us, to empower Ukraine and safeguard truth.

Free, protected and thriving Ukraine that is an equal member in the European Union
We advocate for Ukrainian subjectivity and empower Ukrainian community internationally
Our Vision

We uncover and combat russian disinformation, fostering a globally well-informed and propaganda-resilient community. Through media, discussions, and awareness campaigns, we challenge manipulative russian narratives, enhancing and shaping public security.

Vitsche promptly responds to the urgent Ukrainian needs. We enable and organize direct humanitarian aid to Ukraine through fundraisers with our partners and engage in projects that align with the immediate needs of the given time.
