BBC Ukrainian has launched an internet distribution partnership with Korrespondent.net, Ukraine's leading news website.
In a first for the BBC Ukrainian service, Korrespondent.net will display daily news stories directly from the BBC Ukrainian multimedia website, BBC MIJ SVIT bbc.ua.
BBC MIJ SVIT bbc.ua offers an exclusive BBC content, unique on the Ukrainian market. The new partnership agreement means that users of Korrespondent.net will be able to view the BBC MIJ SVIT bbc.ua text output, from Ukrainian, regional and international news and analysis to economics, sport, art and entertainment.
Sarah Jones, Head of Business Development, Europe, at BBC World Service, says: "It is our ambition to extend the reach of our content in Ukraine and deliver to Ukrainian-speaking news-seekers the best of the BBC's international reporting and analysis. The online partnership with Korrespondent.net is a first for the BBC in Ukraine, and I am confident that we are off to a great start, offering the users of this popular website direct and easy access to the excellent content on bbc.ua."
Head of BBC Ukrainian, Maciek Bernatt-Reszczynski, says: "We are delighted to be associated with a respectable website such as Korrespondent, and hope that together we can better serve the demanding Ukrainian web-users. Very few international news websites are backed by sufficient resources to provide original content. The BBC's multilingual and multimedia international-news websites offer coverage of key world events underpinned by the BBC's unparalleled global network of correspondents. Our Kiev-based team of BBC journalists makes sure the Ukrainian affairs are covered comprehensively and in-depth."
Yulia McGuffie, Korrespondent.net Editor-in-Chief, adds: "I'm happy we have launched this special BBC section on the Ukrainian version of Korrespondent.net, which is the leading news website in Ukraine. For many years BBC Ukrainian and Korrespondent.net have been the sources of unbiased and up-to-the-minute news about Ukraine and the world. Thanks to this new partnership with the BBC, Korrespondent.net readers get fast and direct access to news, reports, interviews and analysis, prepared by journalists of BBC Ukrainian and BBC World Service, and the Korrespondent.net site is being filled with unique and interesting content from this reliable and respectful source. This is undoubtedly a mutually beneficial cooperation, and I'm sure will last for many years. We are proud of our partnership project. This is our first joint project, and I hope not the last one."
The core BBC MIJ SVIT bbc.ua content is available for download on mobile phones at bbc.ua/mobile, making sure audiences have access to BBC news and information in Ukrainian on the go, whenever and wherever they want it.
