About us

Launched in June 2009 as the partner website for the Levyy Bereg weekly, LB.ua has since evolved into an independent news and analysis project.

In 2013, the website's monthly audience exceeded 3 million visitors and continued to grow.

Reporting by LB.ua is not impartial because its editorial office seeks to move away from "Western-style journalism", where journalists simply collect comments without having the right to express their own opinion.

LB.ua uses intellectual input by Gorshenin Institute, a Kyiv-based think-tank.
