Ukrainian Media & the 2019 Elections: A Crash Course

The campaign for President of Ukraine officially started in January. Razom volunteers hosted a presentation on Saturday, February 9 by three media professionals from Ukraine who spoke in New York City about the current media landscape. The intent was to provide a ‘crash course’ on the main media outlets so people following the events in Ukraine can be informed consumers of the news about the election.


We are grateful to everyone who attended. The donations will go to support Hromadske Radio, one of the few non-commercial and non-government owned media in the Ukrainian media market. You can support Hromadske Radio here via PayPal and help maintain an alternative to oligarch-owned media.
