The Ukrainian Week (Ukrainian: Український Тиждень, romanizedUkrainskyi Tyzhden) is an illustrated weekly magazine covering politics, economics and the arts and aimed at the socially engaged Ukrainian-language reader. It provides a range of analysis, opinion, interviews, feature pieces, including travel both in Ukraine and outside, and art reviews and events calendar. Its first editor-in-chief was Yuriy Makarov.

History and profile[edit]

The Ukrainian Week is published in Ukraine by ECEM Media Ukraine GmbH (Austria),[1] and was established in November 2007. The magazine is one of several Ukrainian language magazines that have appeared in Ukraine in the wake of the Orange Revolution.[2]

The English edition of The Ukrainian Week is published bi-monthly and contains a selection of articles deemed to be of most interest to non-Ukrainian readers.

In 2012, it published its statement accusing the state powers and major media-holdings de facto monopolizing the market, of harassment.[1]


In April 2008, by the decision of Wikipedia activists, the editorial board of the Ukrainian Week magazine was awarded the highest award of the Ukrainian Wikipedia, the "Condensed milk with cream", for the article "Let's Wikify",[3] which draws readers' attention to the phenomenon of the Ukrainian Wikipedia and calls for participation in its content.
