The eight new servers in Kiev will let anyone browse the Internet privately and securely with a Ukrainian IP address. Ukraine is the 36th country we have installed servers in, helping us reach more people around the globe.
As Internet censorship and even outright Internet shutdowns become more common, it is essential that you use a trustworthy VPN to maintain access to the Internet. Proton VPN makes it more difficult for your Internet service provider (ISP) or government to restrict your online freedom of speech or access to information. When you connect to a Proton VPN server, your Internet traffic is encrypted so that your ISP cannot monitor your browsing activity. With Proton VPN, you are free to browse the Internet as you please.
We installed our eight new VPN servers in a data center in Kiev. They are available to users on one of our paid plans. Each new server we install increases our capacity for new users and improves service for our current users.
UA#1-3 are available on our Basic plan
UA#4-8 are available on our Plus and Visionary plans
Why servers in Ukraine are useful
Freedom House’s 2017 Freedom on the Net report states that “Ukrainian businesses, government websites, and national infrastructure are frequently subject to cyberattack.” Our servers in Ukraine allow Ukranian users to connect to a VPN while still having a Ukranian IP address. This way, they can encrypt their Internet traffic and browse the Internet securely, even if they are using public WiFi.
Users with a Proton VPN Plus or Visionary plan can add another layer of protection by activating our Secure Core feature. When you use Secure Core, your traffic is first routed through hardened servers that are controlled and owned by Proton VPN. Then it is forwarded to an exit server in the country of your choice. Routing your traffic through two VPN servers makes it even more difficult for attackers to discover your true IP address. With Proton VPN’s Secure Core, you can browse the Internet securely, even in the face of advanced network attacks.

Posting a map of Ukraine without a part of its territory (Crimea) occupied by an aggressor? Not cool, ProtonVPN, not cool at all. I hope you will acknowledge your mistake, fix the map, and reupload the correct version according to the international laws.
You are not forgiven. Correct the spelling to Kyiv if you do not wish to look foolish. The incorrect “Kiev” spelling is nothing more than Russian propaganda. Most dictionaries are old and outdated, and latest reports on Ukraine spell its capital correctly as Kyiv – there is no confusion on their part, and to capitulate in favor of Russian propaganda is to be a traitor to humanity, and those that dare to harm Ukraine will suffer grave, eternal consequences.

Why did you publish a map of Ukraine without Crimea?
Hi, Please add servers to Moldova.
We recently did add servers to Moldova. https://protonvpn.com/blog/moldova-new-servers/ Your wish is granted!
You’re in luck. We’ve just added eight servers in Greece! https://protonvpn.com/blog/new-servers-greece/
Kiev – incorrect
Kyiv – correct
We apologize, we know the spelling is a contentious issue. We stuck with the standard “Kiev” spelling that is used in most dictionaries, even if “Kyiv” is a more faithful transliteration from Ukrainian. This was just to avoid confusion.
