Join Andrew Perpetua’s Project: Help Document the War in Ukraine

Andrew Perpetua’s project has established a firm reputation as one of the leading chroniclers of the Russian invasion of Ukraine – both its events and the changes along the frontlines, and the experiences Ukraine’s people suffer on a daily basis as a result of this war.

Whilst Andrew Perpetua’s project is formally separate from Tochnyi’s, our own research and analysis often draws from Andrew’s own fastidious data collection. Through collaboration with Andrew as a contributor and associate at Tochnyi, our team has been able to work closely with Andrew on a variety of Tochnyi research projects and, in turn, assist in cataloguing items to support Andrew’s project. This is also the case for other members of Andrew’s project and the contributors to his Youtube stream.

We work together with the same fundamental values affirmed within our Mission statement. Due to the workload Andrew’s team is under, as a result of his project expanding at an unsustainable rate, we are in need of more contributors. Documenting the events of any aspect connected to the war in Ukraine is of paramount importance to enable a better understanding of the war from both a micro and macro perspective, and to inform the public about this war’s daily events. Well documented sources for every event enable a lasting database of events to be kept. This database is important for both research and future war crimes investigations.

Andrews main product is his map,, which allows users to browse through the daily events of this war and the current situation on the battlefield. Notable events affecting military targets and civilian victims, fortifications and much more is shown through the map’s adjustable layers.

Are you passionate about contributing to the documentation of crucial events unfolding in Ukraine? Do you possess a strong sense of self-motivation and attention to detail? If so, we invite you to become a part of Andrew Perpetua’s project, to meticulously document the ongoing war in Ukraine through open-source intelligence (OSINT).

Basic Requirements:

  • Self-Motivation: We are seeking individuals who are driven and self-motivated, capable of working independently to contribute to our collective efforts.
  • Dilligence: Attention to detail is paramount. We need individuals who strive for precision and accuracy in their work.
  • Research-oriented: Finding value in the research process is crucial. We’re looking for team members who understand the importance of thorough investigation and analysis.
  • Empathy: Empathy towards the gravity of the situation in Ukraine is essential. We document real events that impact real people, and empathy helps us approach our work with sensitivity and respect.
  • Observant: The ability to observe and emulate the workflow established by Andrew and GiK (‘Geoinformational Kyiv’) is key. Changes in the chain of events can significantly influence our documentation process and adaptability is therefore essential.
  • No Prior Experience Needed: You don’t need previous experience in a related field. As long as you’re motivated to contribute and willing to learn, we welcome your involvement and are willing to support you learn the required processes involved.

Tasks for new contributors:

  • Video analysis. A significant number of videos are used for our documentation are compilations of different events. These videos need to be broken down with timestamps, with events for each different item to be logged in the database.
  • Inserting relevant items into the database. From news reports to police reports, these often originate from a specified list of telegram accounts.
