Text content from the BBC Ukrainian website bbc.ua is now available on Zik.ua, the online portal of the Ukrainian news agency and TV channel, Zik. Thanks to a syndication agreement between BBC World Service and Zik.ua portal, visitors to Zik.ua now see news stories in Ukrainian and Russian from the BBC Ukrainian website.

Users of Zik.ua will be able to view a wide range of the BBC Ukrainian news coverage: from international and regional news reporting relevant to Ukrainian audiences, to entertainment, sport, economics and art. The BBC stories are accompanied by three links leading directly to the core BBC Ukrainian online offer.

BBC Ukrainian Editor, Nina Kuryata says: “We are keen to extend the reach of our content in Ukraine and provide audiences there with the best of the BBC’s international reporting and analysis. This collaboration with Zik.ua is an excellent development for bbc.ua.”

Editor-in-Chief of Zik.ua, Taras Smakula, adds: “For us, the cooperation with an authoritative, highly professional organisation such as BBC Ukrainian is an excellent opportunity to deliver, through our site, to Ukrainian users more high-quality information, broadening the understanding of the events that make up today’s world.”

Frederick Durman, Business Development Manager, BBC World Service, comments: “We are delighted to be expanding the availability of the BBC news content on Ukrainian media thanks to this collaboration with Zik.ua. It will allow even more news seekers across Ukraine to benefit from our Ukrainian- and Russian-language offer.”
