Ukrainian Chicago Magazine is a bi-weekly publication in both Ukrainian and English. Our intended audience is the entire Ukrainian community—Ukrainian Americans as well as new immigrants, and of course, friends of Ukraine. Complimentary copies can be found at numerous popular locations throughout the Chicagoland area, and a digital version is available online on our website.


Ukrainian Chicago Magazine™ is published by a Chicago-based media organization, VIDIA, which runs the main Ukrainian diaspora news outlet.

We started the Ukrainian Chicago™ project back in 2011 by reporting on local events via VIDIA resources, publishing a Ukrainian Chicago™ blog on the Chicago Tribune website,, as well as reaching out to the community using social media. And here you are, right now you can flip through the pages of a print version of Ukrainian Chicago™.

A publication the Ukrainian community, and Ukraine has lacked for a long time.

Ukrainian Chicago Magazine™ features prominent Ukrainians, Ukrainian Americans, friends of Ukraine in Chicago and throughout the U.S. We cover interesting events, Ukrainian lifestyle, remarkable places and institutions, and stories on Ukraine.

In just the first three days after the launch, the digital edition had 7,670 impressions, 185 new magazine subscribers, and 562 new social media followers. The publication has generated plenty of buzz in the media and on social platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
