Almost half of Ukrainian online media considered as transparent - IMI research

27.09.2021, 16:32

In 2021, 46% of Ukrainian media were found out to be mostly transparent. This is evidenced by the first part of the Institute of Mass Information's study, which deals with three basic parameters: information on the website about contact details, about the person responsible for the content (manager / editor-in-chief), and about the media owner.

Thus, 46% of media were mostly transparent (scored 2.5 or 3 for a maximum of 3), 40% had an average level of transparency (1.5-2 points), 12% were mostly opaque (0.5-1 points) and completely opaque were 2% (0 points).

Preferably transparent media 6% more than in 2020 year, and 18% more than in 2019

Mostly transparent were found out to be: "Economicheskie Novosti”,, ICTV, "Fokus", "Facty", "Glavred", "Apostroph", Golos.UA, "Ukrainski Novyny”, "Segodnya", UNIAN, Channel 24, " Ogladach", TSN, Suspilne, Dzerkalo tyzhdnya (DT), Hromadske,"Slovo i Dilo ", Ukrinform," Espresso "," ", NV, RBC. 

Partially transparent were found out to be: " Rakurs", BBC (Ukrainian service), "Bahnet", "Podrobnosti", "Anticor", Interfax, "Pryamy”, "Khvylya", KP.yua, "Vesti", "Glavkom", "Vgolos" , "Politics", "Babel", "Bukvy", UNN, Zakhid.NET, Gordon.UA, Censor.NET and "Ukrainska Pravda".

The following online media turned out to be mostly opaque: "Korrespondent", Radio Svoboda, Znay.UA, Gazeta.UA, "Telegraf" and "Kommentari".

The online media From-UA, which does publish nor one’s initial data about its editorial office, neither one’s owner, turned out to be completely opaque again.
