We digitize, analyze and visualize Ukraine's infrastructure devastated by russian forces

About the project

On February 24, 2022, russia launched a wide-ranging attack on Ukraine, causing numerous destructions, losses, destroying life at every turn. Almost all regions of the country continue to suffer damage and destruction of the infrastructure of varying severity. These losses need to be recorded and digitized to attract funding and start the reconstruction process.
The RebuildUA project aims to analyze and visualize the destroyed infrastructure of Ukraine, disseminate this information and share the results with communities, public authorities and specialized foundations, as well as collect the evidence base of the crimes of the aggressor countries.

Project objectives

What we want to achieve


Digitize damage

Digitize damage and destructions to build a step-by-step recovery plan


Inform the world

Inform the world about the real situation and consequences of the war in Ukraine


Evaluate losses

Run a multidimensinal loss assessment to obtain reparations and attract funding 


Help communities

Provide data to communities to help them obtain funding for reconstruction

What we do

Main stages of the project


Digitization of data from UAVs and satellites

We create high-precision orthophotos in the territories occupied and controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then recognize and digitize destroyed and damaged infrastructure elements.


Photo and video recording

We use only trusted channels on social networks and official sources. The project team and volunteers work directly in the destruction areas to collect photo and video evidence.


Analysis of geospatial data

We develop an interactive geoportal to place the collected data and link it to the map. We will add various layers to display the destruction by severity, type of buildings and their purpose.


Public reports

Based on the collected data, we develop infographics and analytical reports containing information on the number, nature, classification of damage and other details for further damage assessment.

    1,534 damaged buildings

    At the beginning of the russian invasion, russian planes fired rockets at residential buildings at low altitudes in Borodyanka. As a result, the central street of the village turned into ruins — destroyed apartment buildings, fallen trees, and burnt cars.

    Makariv in Kyiv region suffered from constant rocket and artillery shelling from the beginning of the war until April. War criminals chaotically shoot at houses, destroying a local hospital, fire station, police station, schools, kindergartens, and almost the entire infrastructure of the community.

    "Little Mariupol", the most destroyed village of Kyiv region, the village that was under occupation for the longest time — all this tells a story of Andriivka near Bucha. The village is located on the road leading to Kyiv from the belarussian border. Most of the buildings here have been bombed, and the settlement was practically wiped off the face of the earth.

    829 damaged buildings 

    Trostyanets is a town near Sumy that suffered occupation by russian invaders from February 24 to March 26. Most of the buildings in Trostyanets were destroyed by shelling or burned, and the central part of the city — near the hospital and the forestry — was seriously damaged. The areas located near key transport infrastructure facilities were ruined.

    185 damaged buildings 

    The village of Yasnohorodka in the Kyiv region is known for its eco-park and one of the largest ostrich farms (before the war). The first shelling of Yasnohorodka began on February 27, and the intensity of it only increased day after day. Heavy shelling by "Hrads" led to the destruction of private houses, churches, and industrial buildings. Animals either became live targets for the invaders or suffered from hunger hiding in the forests.

    648 damaged buildings 

    Okhtyrka is situated in 30 kilometers from russian border, so on February 24 it was among the first Ukrainian settlements to face the invaders. Both military forces and courageous residents could not stop the russian aggression: the town was shelled by "Hrades" and aviabombs.
