Documenting blocking in Ukraine and shedding light on the extent of censorship.

Between 2017 and 2019, Ukraine changed from having near total internet freedom to serious systematic blocking across a range of websites. This project will utilize the Open Observatory of Network Interference (OONI) to document this blocking and shed light on the extent of censorship occurring within the country.

The All-Ukrainian Internet censorship monitoring project is a project by Digital Security Lab Ukraine, aiming to establish a sustainable system for monitoring and measuring the Internet censorship in all parts of Ukraine – the main part, annexed Crimea and occupied Donbas region. A network of local testers will do measurements using OONI Probe app, Digital Security Lab will analyze and share publicly the results. All the results will be open at Digital Security Lab’s website, GitHub page and OONI’s slack channel. This data will help DSL and other organizations/projects with the Internet Freedom advocacy in Ukraine.
