Named-entity recognition (NER) (also known as entity identification, entity chunking and entity extraction) is a subtask of information extraction that seeks to locate and classify named entities in text into pre-defined categories such as the names of persons, organizations, locations, expressions of times, quantities, monetary values, percentages, etc.

Tools that I used used (DBpedia Spotlight, OpenCalais, LUIS, Stanford NER) do not support Ukrainian natively.

Do you know any NLP/NER tools allowing to work with the Ukrainian language?

There is recent lang-uk initiative that resulted in NER-model for MITIE.

More in depth information about underlying corpus can be found at http://lang.org.ua/corpora/


Stanza has NER model: https://stanfordnlp.github.io/stanza/available_models.html#available-ner-models

They use lang-uk too.
