Abstract: The events that took place on February 24, 2022, had a colossal impact on all world media. Therefore, the media began to actively inform about what is happening in Ukraine. Obviously, Poland was not an exception either, given the territorial proximity and close political relations between the two states. The aim of the work was to investigate how the Polish mass media covered the events that took place in Ukraine before and after the start of the full-scale invasion, as well as to analyze whether the key narratives of the media have changed. The long-term problems of the image of Ukraine in the Polish media have been analyzed, a preliminary analysis of the works of domestic and foreign scientists has been made. This master’s thesis presents theoretical and practical aspects of Polish media activity. For this purpose, the work of the three most popular means of mass communication in the country was analyzed. In the course of the research, it was established that the rhetoric of the Polish mass media has hardly not changed. We can only say that the amount of news about events in Ukraine has increased, however, there have been no drastic changes in functioning. Keywords: Polish media, large-scale war, narratives, thematic range of news, genre diversity. References: 1. Bilobrovets O.
