Who are we?

The ‘Commons’ journal of social criticism is a left Ukrainian media about economy, politics, history and culture, founded in 2009.

What distinguishes us from other Ukrainian media is the attention to the structural causes of social problems and materialist optics.

The editorial board shares egalitarian and anti-capitalist views. That is why in our publications we discuss how to change society so that there is no room for exploitation, inequality and discrimination.
