Abstract. Despite the importance of information and psychological influence (IPI) of psycholinguistic tools used in captions written under the photographs, no attention has been paid to this topic, especially to the Nazi newspapers of Reichskommissariat Ukraine (RKU) which were published in 1941–1944. The aim of this study is to identify, describe and classify psycholinguistic tools of IPI used in captions written under the photographs in newspapers published in the period from 1 September 1941 to 10 November 1944 on the territory of the RKU and funded by the Nazi regime. The researcher refers to the following methods: observation, classification, summarization, content analysis, intent analysis, quantitative and qualitative methods. The present study analyzes the 81 captions placed under the 85 photographs in the newspapers published in the period from 1 September 1941 to 10 November 1944 on the territory of RKU and funded by the Nazi regime. The 8 groups (23 subgroups) of psycholinguistic tools of IPI were described and classified. The analysis shows that the most widely used psycholinguistic tools of IPI in RKU newspapers belong to the following two groups: the group "Germany" which is divided into 9 subgroups and to the group "Others" which is divided into 6 subgroups.

Keywords: psycholinguistic tools, Reichskommissariat Ukraine, information and psychological influence, photographs in newspapers, captions written under photographs.
