Organization of Ukrainian Producers

Our organization was created in March 2022 in response to the Russian army’s full scale invasion of Ukraine. The mission of the Organization of Ukrainian Producers (OUP) is creating documentary and fiction projects about Russian military aggression in Ukraine, supporting movie professionals in hard times, and telling the world personal stories directly

What is OUP?


OUP founders are the key Ukrainian TV and film producers. They united their experience to create movies about the war


It's an opportunity to speak of the war directly with its witnesses. Nothing else conveys the pain of Ukrainian people more precisely than the eyes of a mother who lost her son in the war


We rely on the creative language of movies and series as our way to enter every house around the world and tell about the Russian military aggression

our projects.

When the war began, all Ukrainians asked themselves one question: how can I be useful? Someone found himself volunteering, someone went to the army, and so on. We saw ourselves united and using available means to tell the world what is happening in Ukraine.

Daria Leygonie-Fialko co-founder of the OUP

We, as Ukrainian producers, took on a new challenge: not allow the enemy to destroy us and our industry. For me personally it was also about telling to the world our own reflection about premises, conditions, and causes of the war. The films are aimed, primarily, at the Western audience, and are based on personal stories.

Volodymyr Borodyansky co-founder of the OUP

Docs “9 Lives” and “Main Station of Hope”, which we co-produce with Marina Kvasova, are both about new facets, new depths of humans, unexpected for people themselves. Ukrainians, as it turned out, do not leave their pets in wartime. A German judge, who was watching TV and then got up and went volunteering every day. Why? What has switched on him? You will see self-sacrifice, gratitude, and endurance blended in these stories.
