The National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council of Ukraine has reported that a satellite channel "Ukraine Today" to cover Ukrainian events abroad will be launched shortly.
“Ukraine Today” will go on air in test mode on August 11 and broadcast in full from August 24.
According to the company, all broadcasting will be in English, though in due course it will also do so in Russian.
Commenting on the channel, Alexander Tkachenko, CEO of 1+ 1 Media, said: “For us, as one of the leading Ukrainian media companies, it is important to provide the international community with access to the real facts and events in Ukraine, Russia and the CIS. Unfortunately, in recent years we have witnessed a large-scale information war conducted by Russian state media. We believe that we can respond to it, especially by providing objective information based on the principles of the civilized world: with all-round points of view, without lies and distortions. Ukraine Today is our contribution in support of Ukraine’s European choice.”
Ukraine Today will be distributed FTA via Hotbird this year in Europe and will become available in the US from next year.
