Challenges for the Ukrainian book market in the times of war

The Russian large-scale invasion of February 2022 had a great psychological impact on all Ukrainians, and those book industry depends upon, the writers, were affected as well. Some stopped writing completely, and some part of the Ukrainian audience stopped reading as well. However, having recovered from the initial shock, a lot of Ukrainian publishers and creators have persevered and continued to do their jobs even under fire.

The Ukrainians are becoming more interested in their own history and culture, realizing these are the issues of primary importance while the nation is fighting a war for survival, and thus the demand for history literature is growing.

Ukraine In Flames looks into the Ukrainian book maret amidst the war, talking to writers about how the large-scale invasion influenced their work and the state of the publishing industry.
