UkROSTA was a Soviet news organization founded in January 1920. Its creation served to replace the Bureau of the Ukrainian Press. While UkROSTA was a news organization, it also employed a cadre of artists to design posters for publication. Frequently, the artists (working as a collective) did not attribute their names to the artwork they designed for UkROSTA.
The name "Energy" was used for a multitude of printers throughout the Soviet Union. This particular printer was located in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (Ukrainian SSR) and in the city of Kharkov.
UkROSTA was founded in January 1920 on the existing Bureau of the Ukrainian Press (1918-1919). UkROSTA's main office was located in Kiev. In 1925, with the creation of the Telegraph Agency of the USSR (TASS), UkROSTA lost much of its wider-serving news operations as it became subservient to TASS.
