Belsat launches information services in Ukrainian

“Until now, viewers of the station could watch news in Belarusian and Russian,” Belsat TV’s chief promotional officer told the PAP news agency.

He added that “the decision to expand Belsat’s programme offer is a response to the situation in Ukraine, whose inhabitants, as a result of the war, have increasingly difficult access to current information.”

News bulletins in Ukrainian will be broadcast at 8 pm EET (7 pm CET).

The station said that “for the time being, one news programme in Ukrainian per day is planned”.

“The number of materials in Ukrainian will probably have to be increased over time. Especially if Russian troops prevent our Ukrainian colleagues from working,” Belsat deputy director was quoted as saying.

Since February 24, the day the war broke out in Ukraine, Belsat has changed its schedule to provide as much information as possible on the events in the country.

“In the first days of the conflict, the studio in Warsaw broadcast several hours of live news blocks, and since March 2, after the Russian bombing of TV towers in Kyiv, the station has also been rebroadcasting the programme of Ukrainian channels broadcasting together,” the station said.

Both Belsat TV and TVP World are part of TVP S.A. Belsat began broadcasting in 2007 for Belarusian viewers and in the Belarusian language.
