Ukraine is a European country once a part of the former Soviet Union, lying between Poland on the west and Russia on the east. In 1986, the world's worst nuclear accident occurred at Chernobyl, 80 miles north of the capital city Kiev. [1]


The BBC says of the country's media:

After the 2004 Orange Revolution, the influence of the state and media owners on editorial policy became weaker. However, partisan attacks on political opponents are made via some TV channels, in newspapers or on websites. Despite an expanding advertising market, many media outlets rely on the support of wealthy sponsors.
Under former President Leonid Kuchma, a number of opposition papers were closed and several journalists investigating high-profile crimes died in mysterious circumstances. Prominent journalist Georgiy Gongadze disappeared in September 2000; his body was found two months later.[2]
