Welcome to the Ukraine WikiProject, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Ukraine.

(For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and the Guide to WikiProjects).

  • To improve and assess Ukraine-related articles.
  • Any article that is related to Ukraine.
  • This Wikiproject does not substitute but complements the Ukraine Portal. While their functions somewhat overlap, the Portal is primarily aimed at generating the readers' interest to Ukraine-related articles and help navigate the Ukrainian topics. This project is more like a working horse while the portal is the product in itself.


This page includes helpful resources, guides, and standards for creating and editing articles within the scope of the Ukraine WikiProject. If you need help on an article you're working on, look here first.

Ministry of Defence (Ukraine)[edit]

I found the picture of the ministry's main building on the Commons [1], but somehow was unable to insert it into the infobox. Would somebody fix this? Thank you, Ukrained (talk) 23:41, 27 January 2012 (UTC)


I am a total amateur at working with Wiki but I would like to contribute two (2) additions to the list of Ukranian Righteous Gentiles. Their names are Munko Lubidzin and Semen Sawkie. Both helped a group of 38 Ukranian Jews to survive the Holocaust in a cave, Popowa Yama or Priest's Grotto. The details of the help these two men provided is documented in the book, "The Secret of Priest's Grotto", by Peter Lane Taylor and Cristos Nicola. The book was also made into a movie (No Place on Earth).

Yuriy Ilyin[edit]

I've nomintated this as a successful Did You Know candidate - if anyone can help by adding any relevant information or proof-reading in the meantime to help improve the article it would be appreciated! SheffGruff (talk) 16:35, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Articles for deletion[edit]

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Hermitech Laboratory[edit]

Hermitech Laboratory (Zhytomyr, Ukraine) develops mathematical software tools. It's now up for AfD for lack of sources, a situation that always leaves me uncomfortable, due WP:BIAS, Cyrillic alphabet, Argument from ignorance etc. Could somebody please confirm lack of independent mention in Ukrainian media -- please comment on the AfD page. Power.corrupts (talk) 15:40, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Mykola Mazepa[edit]

The article Mykola Mazepa was translated by machine from the article in the Ukrainian Wikipedia. Comments and additional references would be appreciated. I can't tell whether the person’s accomplishments add up to notability. — Eastmain (talkcontribs) 23:41, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Duly deleted: blatant elaborate self-promotion of an obscure police retiree. Ukrained (talk) 14:47, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Yanukovych and wreath[edit]

On May 17, 2010 during a ceremony where the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev was present, the Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych was hit by a pine wreath picked up by a gust of wind.[1][2][3][4][5][6] The wreath "assault" was later aired on several national channels (1+1, STB, Shuster Live, others).[7] Even though the accident was censored as much as possible on the Russian internet it continues to be shown through other non-Russian electronic media.[8] The incident stirred numerous creative ideas in Ukraine and abroad[9] and was named as the Pine Struggle (Ukrainian: Ялинковий спротив).[10] The event coincided with Yanukovych's intent to sign an agreement with the Russian Federation to give up some of the Ukrainian territories in Crimea.[11][12] Viktor Yanukovych called it demilitation (Russian: демилитация).[13] The Kievan Brotherhood society filed criminal charges on the presidential escort for their negligence.

Apparently some Garik 11 does not like this fact and keeps on deleting it. He calls it gibberish. That incident also is mentioned on the other versions of Wikipedia. Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 18:18, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Nomination for deletion of several Ukrainian parliamentary election templates[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svgSeveral templates have been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for discussion page. — Petr Matas 09:45, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
