VOA Broadcasting in Ukrainian
VOA is the leading international broadcaster in Ukraine, providing up-to-date news and information through television, as well as its online and social media platforms. Daily broadcasts offer U.S. and international news coverage and feature stories about American life and social trends. VOA is a vital source of information about U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine and the region, as well as American achievements in democratic governance, business, health, science and technology. Ukrainian media have a minimal presence in Washington and so VOA remains Ukraine’s main window on America.
