Fact-checking website Stopfake.org was launched on March 2, 2014 by alumni and students of Mohyla School of Journalism and of the Digital Future of Journalism professional program for journalists and editors.

At a later stage, the initial team was joined by many journalists, marketing specialists, programmers, translators and all those who care about the fate of our country and its people.

The main purpose of this community is to check facts, verify information, and refute distorted information and propaganda about events in Ukraine covered in the media.

The number of volunteers is constantly growing to help verify information, to write, to edit and to translate stories.
