Novomedia Journalists Association Is Now International


In late December 2012, Novomedia received the official confirmation of its status change from all-Ukrainian to international.

Novomedia has long been working outside Ukraine, with its membership cards issued to citizens of a number of countries. Throughout these years, journalists from neighboring and far-abroad states had continuously appealed to the Association’s office in Kyiv, suggesting to expand  the mission far beyond one country.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year 2013!

Dear friends, colleagues, brothers and sisters in Christ!

My name is Ruslan Kukharchuk, and I am a head of the Ukrainian Association of Christian Journalists “Novomedia”. First of all, I’d like to say thank you to Arne Fjeldstad and the Board of The Media Project for choosing Ukraine as a host country for the 2012 European Journalists’ Conference. The last European conference was held in Prague in 2008 and I had a privilege to participate in it. It was a precious experience to have fellowship with Christian colleagues from more than 10 countries.
