Meta Data

There are inconsistencies with the registration of the outlet. There are two entries for “Gazeta po-ukrainski” in the State Registry, one made in 2008 (no longer valid) and the other is dated 2014. Back in 2008 the founder of the newspaper was indicated as “Nova Informatsiya” publishing group, the record of which does not exist in state registry. The research by the fiscal number associated with the publishing group resulted in yet another inconsistency. Currently the fiscal number is owned by another company and legal entity with the name “Nova Informatsiya” publishing group does not exist. Therefore, we use the information provided by Sergei Leshchenko’s research on “Ukrainska Pravda” ("Ukrainian Truth") in 2006; it helped us find an additional connection between Ihor Vasyunyk and Konstantin Zhevago and the publisher. Information about management and participation interest in the company is also available in public sources. There is almost no mention of the newspaper and magazine in media (lack of headlines), which may indicate a lack of conflict around the group, low activity and a small market share.
