Strana (The Country) is regarded as one of the leading Ukrainian news sites and was founded in 2016. Articles are published in Russian only. Strana always had a tense relationship with those in power, under Poroshenko as well as under Zelenskyi. The authorities have searched the editorial offices multiple times. The editor-in-chief, Ihor Huzhva received political asylum in Austria in the autumn of 2018. The future financing of the site is unclear. Opponents describe the site as pro-Russian and financed by Russians.
