The Council of Europe Information Society Department, DGI has provided a grant in amount of 65.760 EUR to the Public Broadcasting Company of Ukraine (UA:PBC) aimed at supporting urgent needs of the company due to Russian aggression against Ukraine, namely to cover accommodation of the UA:PBC staff members relocated from the headquarters in Kyiv and other cities affected by the war to Lviv.

This action was requested by the leadership of the Ukrainian public broadcaster, which is a long-term beneficiary and partner of the Council of Europe co-operation projects, in order to support uninterrupted operations of the UA:PBC during the times of war.

Within the priority adjustment to the Council of Europe Action Plan for Ukraine 2018-2022, the Division for Co-operation on Freedom of Expression of the Information Society Department is planning further activities to support the Ukrainian public broadcaster and other partners to enable their operations and ensuring sustainability of the country’s media.


Following the decision of the Committee of Ministers on 16 March 2022 the Russian Federation is no longer a member of the Council of Europe. The website will be updated as soon as possible to take account of this development.
