Public Information

UNHCR is always looking for new and inventive ways to communicate. We have developed numerous campaigns on TV, radio and social media, using various supports (videos, articles, etc.).

UNHCR works with both print and digital media daily. We cover and explain the latest news. We collect and publish stories of displaced and stateless people, on both our website and social media platforms, to make the public aware of real stories behind the issue of displacement.

UNHCR uses Facebook and Twitter to inform of current opportunities, scholarships or vocational trainings. We communicate on our activities and events in Ukrainian, English and Russian.

UNHCR Brochure “25 years in Ukraine”

  • This is a brochure pegged to three interrelated jubilees related to the UN Refugee Agency – UNHCR, particularly the quarter of a century it has been active in Ukraine. In December 2020, UNHCR marked the 25th anniversary of the formal opening of its office in Ukraine. And this jubilee coincided with the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees on 14 December 1950, and the 75th anniversary of the creation of the United Nations in 1945. The brochure employs a chronological narrative, adding thematic boxes, photos and infographics.
