The Wikimedia movement in Ukraine was featured in a Japanese web magazine

Translate this post

I wrote an article for a Japanese web magazine “ENGLISH JOURNAL.” In that article, I introduced the Wikimedia movement in Ukraine.



The article consists of three parts. First, I presented the activities of Ukrainian Wikimedians before 2022. It ranges from the establishment of Wikimedia Ukraine, the Wikimedia education project (WikiStudia), and Wiki Loves Earth, a world-renowned photography contest.

The second part featured two statements from the Wikimedia Foundation for the 2022 invasion: “Wikimedia Foundation calls for continued access to free and open knowledge as Ukraine crisis continues” and “The Wikimedia Foundation stands with its communities around the world in defending free knowledge in the face of threats from the Russian government“.

In the last part, I introduced the activities of Ukrainian Wikimedians after 2022. In the section, I referred my friend Anton Protsiuk‘s works to record how Wikimedians in Ukraine are living lives.
