A new language bill approved in first reading in the Rada stipulates that all media in Ukraine — print, online, or television — must be in Ukrainian

A new language bill approved in first reading in the Rada stipulates that all media in Ukraine — print, online, or television — must be in Ukrainian, warns the Kyiv Post. News sites, newspapers and magazines can be published in other languages only if they also produce Ukrainian versions of the same size and content. In an editorial, the Post appeals to the bill’s sponsors to “make an exemption for the English-language media or soften the language demands made of the media in general.” Otherwise, the Post warns: “We would have to close, or drastically reduce our publication in size.” The Ukraine Business News plans to offer the Morning News in Ukrainian and Russian languages next month.
