Selected Russian Newspapers
from Eastern Ukraine
at the Library of Congress Montage of Russian newspapers from Eastern Ukraine

Angela Cannon
Reference Specialist for Russian and South Slavic

In March 2014 Russia annexed Crimea and in the following month ethnic Russians living in Eastern Ukraine, fighting to break away from Ukraine, declared their own "Donetsk People's Republic." Since that time, with the financial backing of the Russian government, many Russian-language newspapers have been published in these two regions in support of the annexation and the separatist movement. Although the United States does not recognize this annexation, for historical research and preservation, the Library of Congress has been collecting these newspapers despite the difficulties in obtaining printed materials from the area. This finding aid presents the Library's holdings of these pro-Russian newspapers, and in addition, other Russian-language titles from the region that were published both before and after 2014.

The Library of Congress holds issues of these newspapers in print and/or electronic format. The digital titles are included in several databases that are available onsite only, including: Universal Database of Ukrainian Publications (UDB-UKR) and the Donetsk and Luhansk Newspaper Collection (DA-DNR). Researchers may access these databases as well as loose print issues that do not circulate outside of the building by visiting the European Reading Room. Microfilm reels may be borrowed on interlibrary loan. The coverage and scope of the titles included in this finding aid is approximately 2013 to the present day, with most titles being published in Ukraine. The listings are arranged by city of publication and reflect the Library's holdings as of July 2017. Not many titles have complete runs, for obtaining newspapers from these regions is problematic. Also problematic is verifying if any publishing at all in the Ukrainian language is occurring in the disputed areas. To date, the Library of Congress has not acquired any such material.

For information about other Russian newspapers published in all of Ukraine, including pre-2013 titles from Eastern Ukraine, see Russian Newspapers at the Library of Congress under the section entitled "Foreign Countries" and then "Ukraine": http://www.loc.gov/rr/european/newspapers/ru/runews6.html
