Expansion out of Ukraine
After launching 1+1 International in 2006 (see section below), which is aimed at the Ukrainian diaspora, the group will start its first attempt at gaining part of the international TV market by launching Ukraine Today. Ukraine Today is the first Ukrainian non-stop news channel. Launched in August 2014, it offers a biased view of current events happening in Ukraine, in Eastern Europe and Post-Soviet states. Privately owned and managed, it was created namely in response to Russian disinformation surrounding the events in Ukraine. Providing facts and quality journalism is a key mission of the channel.
