Ukrainian national phone operator presented an exclusive application
Kyivstar national telecom operator presented Vkraina.com mobile application project to encourage Ukrainians to learn more about history of Ukraine's lands in XVI-XVIII centuries.
Vkraina online multimedia presentation is based on Andriy Osadchuk’s private collection containing European maps of 16-18th centuries. The specimens have been collected for more than 5 years; most of them were brought back to Ukraine from Europe and US.

Thus, 34 chronologically ordered maps, commented by the collector himself, give a glimpse on cartographic history of Ukrainian lands in 16th-18th centuries. Each map carries a unique distinctive image of Ukrainian land as seen by the Europeans of that time with all of the names and boundaries caught in their diversity.
