In Ukraine there are not only newspapers in Russian and Ukrainian language. There are some few of them which are also available in English.
On this post we will talk about:
– Kyiv post
– Kyiv weekly or Weekly.ua
– Business Ukraine
– Meridian and Panorama
All these newspaper speak about Ukraine one a wide range of topics.
Possible that exist even other ones but so far these are the ones we know.
(if you know some more, pls write us. Comment or email)
This is probably the most famous English newspaper of Ukraine.
It is available only in English and has the shape of a true newspaper. In the past was printed in color but nowadays is just printed in black and white (probable effect of the crisis).
On the Kyiv post is possible to find also ads about Real estate, Jobs and personal ads from normal people.
The most beautiful thing of this newspaper is, from our point of view, the web site where it is possible to read articles, guides find photos and share your opinions (there is also a forum).
This is for sure the best site where to find information about Ukraine in English language.
Price and subscription
If you want to make a subscription you can chose to get a paper copy or just to get it through the net.
For to know about subscription read:
When it is issued
Every week on Friday
Kyiv weekly or Weekly.ua
On the contrary of the Kyiv post this magazine is multi-language. Each copy of it is issued in two language: English – Russian or English – Ukrainian. Half of the magazine is in one language and the other half is in English.
The articles are not always identical so it is possible to find an article in Russian but the same article may be not present on the English side and the opposite.
Anyway it is still a nice way for to lear Russian or Ukrainian.
The Kyiv weekly was before issued in the shape of newspaper but nowadays it changed and became a true magazine and it is called Weekly.ua
From our point of view this magazine is better than the Kyiv post, we like that is printed in color and the possibility to learn also some Russian and Ukrainian word.
In general the magazine is really very nice and also cheaper than the Kyiv post.
Also the Kyiv weekly is available online but the web site is not as good as the one of the Kyiv post.
One copy was costing: 2.15 UAH (anyway price may have increased)
It is also possible to make a subscription: http://www.kyivweekly.com/?text=1140993258
When it is issued
Every week on Thursday.
This is another magazine, and despite of the title is not completely focused on economy but it is also possible to read about other different topics.
To say the truth We don’t know so much about this magazine since we met it for the first time at the airport as free copy before to come inside the plane. We really liked it.
Its website, doesn’t look up to date… anyway if you are in Ukraine you can try to find it in some newsstand.
In future we hope to find some more information about it.
Meridian and Panorama
These two magazines are offered by national airlines, and you can read them while you fly with Aerosvit or Donbass aero (Meridian) and Ukrainian international airline (Panorama).
These magazines are free of charge and are issued in English and Ukrainian. They speak in general about traveling and give some extra information about the airline company and its routes.
They are very useful for to learn Ukrainian since the text in English is just after the text in Ukrainian.
You can find these magazines not only onboard but also in the offices of these companies (for ex. when you want to buy a ticket)
