In the State Registry of media “Gazeta po-ukrainski” (“Ukrainian newspaper”)” has two groups of certificates - new from 2014, and the one from 2008, which is no longer valid. At that time, “Nova Informatsiya” (“New Information”) publishing group, LLC was the founder and this is consonant with the current founder. However, currently fiscal number is owned by another company and legal entity with the same name does not exist. So we use the information described in a research of Sergei Leshchenko for “Ukrainska Pravda” ("Ukrainian Truth") as of 2006, since it is clear that at that time this information was relevant and accessible and it helps to find an additional connection of Ihor Vasyunuk with the publisher.
