Abstract

This chapter looks at Hromadske.TV – to the day the most popular Internet television station in Ukraine, registered as an NGO. It started its broadcast on 22 November 2013, the next day after the Ukrainian Government suspended preparation for signing the Ukraine EU Association letter, by a group of young independent journalists, and soon became the biggest eyewitness public platform of the political and social crisis that stroke Ukraine in 2013-2014. However after these events Hromadske.TV grew up into not only a political and informational recourse, but a broader platform to talk about all cultural and social issues at the time when it’s most needed – when the country is still trying to build up its cultural and social identity. More importantly, this article explores the role of media in shaping this identity.
