Kremenchutsky Telegraf will no longer be printed

16.02.2024, 11:11

The newspaper "Kremenchutsky Telegraf" (Poltava oblast) will no longer be printed. The last issue was released on February 8, 2024.

Editor-in-chief Lesya Lazorenko reported this to the representative of the Institute of Mass Information in the Poltava oblast.

According to her, the outlet had no revenue, as they sold no ads.

"It was a donor project, a grant that we won. It lasted for 5 months, but did not involve printed advertising, subscriptions or retail sales. Essentially, we had no revenue that would've allowed us to keep printing the newspaper after the project ended. Today, the paper price is still unaffordable for us. We cannot cover the costs of producing and printing 'Kremenchutsky Telegraf' with our own budget," said Lesya Lazorenko.

She added the donors have been informed of this and the media outlet's team hopes that if any similar grants are announced in the future, they will take the situation into account.

In September 2023, "Kremenchutsky Telegraf", which had been out of print since the start of Russia's full-scale war, resumed printing. The issues were being distributed free of charge, according to the terms of the grant agreement.

"Pryvatna Hazeta" Publishing House (which includes the websites, and the print outlets "Kremenchutsky Telegraf", "Pryvatna Hazeta" and "Dlia Domu i Simyi") operated as an independent media through ad revenues until February 24, 2022.

After the start of the big war, since March 2022, the publisher temporarily suspended the production of printed issues and laid off the employees of the advertising department, the department for accepting ads and the sales department. The website never stopped working.
