About us

Pobratymy – a team that specializes in psychosocial adaptation of veterans. The Ukrainian Public Union Pobratymy was established in 2015 to support veterans returning to civilian life after taking part in combat operations in eastern Ukraine.

For the first time in Ukraine, we have introduced the «peer to peer» support system, which is already widely used around the world. The peer to peer approach allows veterans to support each other in collaboration with specialists. Veterans receive the tools needed to support their brothers and sisters, while working with their own unique experiences. All of the work is done by veterans, and Pobratymy act as their support. The purpose of our activity is to build an international network of mutual support for veterans.

Iryna Kovalevych

Friends, as many of you know, last year I took part in a training session for veterans wives specializing in work with shock trauma experience. Over the course of four months, we received a lot of information and exercises, and, work was done to reflect my own experience. Thanks to these trainings, I am now able to better understand myself and deal with the everyday troubles around me. Moreover, I now have a circle of people who have a common experience, understand me and support me when I need it.

    The role of women in war has changed significantly over the last 100 years

    Until the 20th century, war was a subject only for men. Women appeared only when the situation turned dire, and mainly acted as sisters of mercy.


Your brotherhood – your support
