VOA Broadcasting in Ukrainian
VOA is the leading international broadcaster in Ukraine, providing up-to-date news and information through television and the Internet. 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.
