About “World Press” category
The category “World Press” is created to observe information about Ukraine in the world media. As our website works on the language basis, so it is oriented only on English-language media, regardless of their origin.
Publishing the news excerpts is made according to the terms and conditions.
We don’t use content in World Press categories to make any profit or in commercial use. We guarantee not to display advertisement or commercial information on the pages with source’s content and in World Press categories at all.
Some of the well-known media can be not represented because we use only their RSS feeds, in which they distribute those materials that are considered necessary. If the publication has no RSS for third-party aggregators/ users, it will not be represented in this category. We don’t copy, aggregate or make parsing of the information from websites of any media.
When processing and sorting data, we used the following principles:
All information in “World Press” categories are the excerpts from news, which contain references to Ukraine or Ukrainian people or relate to them directly. Often there is news devoted to non-Ukrainian events where Ukraine is mentioned only in the context. We think that such information is also important because it allows you to track the processes in one or another way connected to Ukraine. Thus, in 2014, Ukraine was often mentioned in the context of territorial claims between states in different regions of the world (Russia’s annexation of the Crimea), on the issue of nuclear disarmament and non-nuclear states guarantees or security of international flights after the tragedy of Boeing – we consider that all this data is current and relevant for our media. Still, the “World Press” categories can get not relevant information, where mention of Ukraine is quite random and not subject material. If you notice it we will be grateful if you inform us on [email protected]
When referring media to a country (region), we are guided not by accommodation of the audience but the country where the headquarter is. (Yes, we know it’s not ideal, but in the context of globalization and dispersion of media bureaus, we believe that the policy of editorial headquarters plays a key role).
We tried to show the widest range of world media, even if the specific media publish information about Ukraine very rare. Lack of information about Ukraine – is also information that allows us to estimate the level of awareness and interest in the inhabitants of a region in the information about Ukraine or editorial policy of the publication.
Keep in mind that the media of English-speaking countries (USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) is aimed to local audiences, English-language media in other countries – the international audience.
Total number of publications of each media may depend not only on the intensity of publications about Ukraine, but also from the time of connection of the media to the category “World Press”.
In the plans – add excerpts of all the media news to August 2013. We believe that this period reflects a key to the dynamic of Ukraine in last years: from passive in the international arena with the authoritarian government of Yanukovych to diplomatic scandal EU Euromaidan, revolution, annexation of the Crimea and the Russian-Ukrainian conflict in the Donbas.
