Ukrainian Magazine® is a diaspora publication both in Ukrainian and English featuring prominent Ukrainians, Ukrainian Americans, and friends of Ukraine. The stories cover interesting events, Ukrainian lifestyle, remarkable places and institutions, and stories on Ukraine.

Originally known as Ukrainian Chicago (Українське Чикаго), a bi-weekly print publication distributed at numerous popular locations throughout the Chicagoland area and by mail throughout the U.S..


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. A print version of the original magazine was distributed locally in the Chicago area, and via mail subscription throughout the United States. Digital version of the original print publication is now available online on our website.

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

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