Playboy extends Ukrainian branch's license – magazine co-founder
The main office of the men's magazine Playboy revoked its decision to close the Ukrainian branch.
The magazine's license has been extended, the magazine's co-founder Oleksandr Shevchenko said.
"There will be a post-war Playboy Party after all," he wrote.
As IMI reported, US company Playboy Enterprises is closing down the Ukrainian version of the magazine, which has been in print in Ukraine since 2005. As Oleksandr Shevchenko, co-owner of the Ukrainian office, told Suspilne, this could have happened due to them releasing a special issue about the war, which had not been coordinated with the central office.
Earlier, the Ukrainian office co-owner reported that the Ukrainian media outlet had fulfilled all financial obligations to the owner "100%" and reminded that the magazine still operates in Russia.
Playboy was founded by Hugh Hefner in 1953. The Ukrainian version of the American men's magazine Playboy has been in print since 2005. Until 2021, the magazine had been published in Russian.
