Svidok (Witness in Ukrainian) is a personal war journal platform where Ukrainians can safely and securely store their experiences of living through the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and collect evidence of all the atrocities and war crimes that were committed by the Russians leadership & military.
Svidok has been built by the citizens and friends of Ukraine, in partnership with the AI for Good Foundation, to ensure the truth of this war is accurately documented and preserved.

Let's Hold Russia
Accountable For Its Crimes
These personal stories and investigations serve as a rich archive of evidence for Russia’s war crimes in Ukraine.
If you are a journalist, government official or war crime investigator wishing to access and search through the database of publicly shared stories to collect evidence, and connect with particular authors (contingent on their approval), we invite you to request an official account on the Svidok website.
It’s a victory when weapons fall silent and people speak up.
