The two hundred-seventeenth (217) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military invasion continues.

About us: The “Active Community” initiative was launched by activists of the “Republika” Institute after the Euromaidan (2014), which focused on the activation and involvement of Ukrainians in the decision-making process. The goal for 2025: to activate and involve at least 1% of citizens in making decisions and promoting reforms in Ukraine on a systematic basis for the well-being of Ukrainian communities. Today we work in 30 communities in Ukraine.

Northern oblasts


According to the counterintelligence of the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU), the hostile henchwoman is an official of one of the capital’s Administrative Services Centers, who created her own fake account on the social network after the start of the full-scale invasion. She urged Ukrainians to seize state power and campaigned to support the occupation groups of Russia, and also justified the crimes of the invaders. Currently, the detainee has been notified of suspicion under five articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The court chose a measure of restraint for her in the form of detention.

In the Solomianskyi district of the capital, Piterska Street was renamed London Street.

Zhytomyr Oblast

Denys Anikanov, who was killed in action on September 21 while defending the eastern borders of Ukraine, was buried in Zhytomyr. Blessed be the memory of the Hero!

Together with representatives of foreign countries, the Ukrainian Government, people’s deputies, heads of oblast communities, they held the First Regional Forum, dedicated to the restoration of the territories of the Zhytomyr Oblast affected by russian aggression.

More than 2,200 private houses were damaged in the oblast, 169 of them were completely destroyed. 5 thousand residents of the Zhytomyr Oblast lived in them.

The famous Zhytomyr puppeteer Serhiy Solovyov took part in the international festival of puppet theaters organized by UNIMA Germany (Der Naht theater in the city of Nordheim).

According to the Department of Culture and Tourism, in general, during the performances, humanitarian aid was collected and handed over to the public organization “Volunteer Headquarters of Zhytomyr”, namely: a lung ventilator, a mobile oxygen concentrator, compression pads and dressing materials, medicines, hygiene products, men’s underwear, and auxiliary medical equipment.

In Zhytomyr, they showed a documentary performance “Breathe! You have to! ”, in which five actors took part and told their stories. According to the mentor of the documentary theater, Anna Yeriomenko, the performance is based on the real stories of five residents of Zhytomyr. This is a pilot project in Zhytomyr, but not the last one: “Real stories of five real Zhytomyr residents of different genders, ages and fields of activity. The common thing for all the heroes is that the war caught them in Zhytomyr,” said Anna Yeriomenko.

The results of the “pseudo-referendum” do not match the real number of people living in the occupied territories of the Luhansk Oblast. The occupiers claimed that more than 1.6 million people took part in the “election without a choice”, but even a rough estimate would be far from that huge figure.

In Poltava, a collaborator who praised Putin in front of his guests was sentenced. On September 6, two guests came to Viktor Tkachenko’s home from the Kharkiv Oblast. In a conversation with them, the man began to praise the president of russia and urged that “Ukraine must definitely join the russian federation.”

Poltava Oblast Military Administration, military unit A7312, public movement “Defense of Poltava” joined forces to create an oblast platform for training in tactical medicine. Poltava has all the prerequisites for organizing such a powerful platform. There is a base for conducting theoretical and practical classes. Thanks to cooperation with volunteers, partners from Ireland, the Czech Republic and France were involved.

The community of Poltava Oblast refused to carry out de-russification. In Orzhytsa, local deputies decided that they would not de-russify the names of a number of streets, and rejected the activists’ proposal at their own discretion. The situation is similar in the Zavodske community. There, the local authorities refused to carry out de-russification and announced that they had renamed Zhovtneva [October] Street to Druzhby Narodov [People’s Friendship] Street. Such names, in their opinion, do not remind of the historical past associated with russia.

Poltava rescuers handed over to the military part of 20 metal stoves for heating rooms and cooking food.
