CAT-UA was initially a volunteer team that assembled on the first day of the full-scale invasion, February 24, 2022, to assist Ukrainian military and civilian authorities with media analysis. Over time, we turned into a public organization, the goal of which is transparent and modern principles and formats of communication in Ukraine, as well as abroad – regarding Ukraine. We conduct research to combat manipulation, misleading influence and information special operations
