Daily newspaper

Vesti (News) is one of Ukraine’s main daily newspapers. Launched in 2013 and distributed for free for many years, the newspaper quickly gained huge popularity. After the violent regime change in 2014, it was critical of the new govermnent, leading to problems with the law enforcement agencies. The editorial offices were seized by the authorities after numerous searches in February 2018. Yet the newspaper is still in circulation. Former editor-in-chief Igor Guzhva later founded the government-critical website Strana after being forced to leave in 2015. Opponents describe the site as pro-Russian.
