REPUBLIC. Strategic communications

Agency that helps the state and citizens to find common language and build trust

Who we are

We are a team of likeminded people with 7 to 15 years of experience in communication, project management, sociology, economics, journalism, government communications and law. Almost 10 years ago, we were the first in Ukraine to launch a destination marketing and investment promotion practice to help the state and its regions with strategic communications.

We have joined together to create Republic, because:

 

  • We strive for Ukraine to have free and responsible citizens, united in vibrant communities and living in a country where the government is accountable to people
  • We believe that the government should speak the same, human language with people, provide service, listen and be heard, be able to say “sorry” and “thank you”; in order to be effective and efficient, the governance has to be humane
  • We want Ukraine – the country, its cities and regions – to build a vibrant dialogue with the world.

We form the voice of the state that is emerging.  

We are on the people and government’s side.

We are building their relationship inside and outside of Ukraine. We are helping the institutions to communicate with “little Ukrainian” and international audiences

 

 

 

We are building the trust between the government and the people, the trust and credibility for Ukraine in the world
