Ukrainian Wikipedia: Background

Now the Ukrainian Wikipedia includes over a million articles written exclusively in Ukrainian and more than 126,000 authors. For several years in a row, the Ukrainian Wikipedia has been demonstrating stable growth, and the trend is expected to prevail into 2021.

Wikipedia, including Ukrainian, is not a reliable source in the scientific sense and encourages readers to seek medical advice elsewhere. It is neither a news website nor catalog of any information. However, this is one of the most popular websites, whose format allows adding valuable encyclopedic information in real-time.
