"Mailpeople" in the Kirovohrad oblast spread misinformation about a local newspaper
Inna Tilnova, the editor of the Kirovohrad oblast print newspaper "Nova Hazeta", reported that some Ukrposhta employees have been dissuading potential readers from subscribing to the newspaper.
Tilnova shared this with the IMI representative in the Kirovohrad oblast.
According to her, two such incidents happened in early December.
"One of our readers was dissuaded from subscribing to 'Nova Hazeta' because he was told that it would no longer be printed in 2024. And it was at the main post office in Kropyvnytsky! While in Blahovishchensk, another reader was told that 'Nova Hazeta' was out of print, and thus out of stock. Although, as you understand, this is not the case at all, because we keep working and never planned to stop printing," said Tilnova.
In order to understand what happened, the editor called the regional director of Ukrposhta, Tetyana Kapustina, who assured her that she would deal with the situation. The Kirovohrad oblast head of post called the incidents in question the "human factor".
The IMI representative also tried to contact Tetyana Kapustina, but she did not answer the phone calls.
The "Nova Hazeta" editor Inna Tilnova thanked the readers for their concern, because it was thanks to them that she learned about such actions by Ukrposhta employees.
The IMI will continue to monitor the situation and any comment or official response by the Ukrposhta representative will be posted as soon as it arrives.
Help us be even more cool!
