Our history

Since 2014 Promote Ukraine aimed at being established as a hub for coordination and collaboration between volunteers and civil society organisations  in benefit of democratic and sovereign Ukraine.

In March 2022 in response to the full-scale invasion of Russia in Ukraine, the President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola offered the space of the European Parliament building Station Europe to the volunteers of the organization Promote Ukraine.

It is also supported by the President of the European Economic and Social Committe Christa Schweng who provided the room for Ukrainian Hub at the premises of the Committee.

We are very grateful to President Metsola and President Schweng for support of Ukrainian activism and their trust in our cause.  


Promote Ukraine stays firmly behind the idea of Ukrainian Hub in the heart of the European Union. Therefore, volunteers of PU created the website which functions independently from any physical locations and should become the centre for cooperation between the pro-Ukraine activists in long run.

On you can explore who we are and what we do. If you feel compelled, if you know we can be helpful to each other, reach out: we are open to cooperation.
