All articles reviewed were pro-Ukrainian, however, they do make an effort to give both Ukrainian and Russian perspectives in their ongoing conflict. Further, The GW Library cites Euromaidan Press as a Progressive Ukrainian site, that promotes pro-Ukrainian propaganda.

Based on strong sourcing and left-leaning political affiliation, we rate Euromaidan Press (EP) as high for factual reporting with a left-center pro-Ukrainian bias.
