The channel’s president said

EuroNews plans to begin broadcasting in the Ukrainian language, the channel’s president Philippe Cayla said on Russian FM radio station Ekho Moskvy, according to  The Hollywood Reporter.

Cayla wouldn’t give any timeframe for the beginning of Ukrainian broadcasting but recalled the channel’s role in fostering democratic development in the country by its coverage of the “orange revolution” in Ukraine three and a half years ago.

The announcement came amidst a campaign in Ukraine for greater use of Ukrainian on TV as opposed to Russian.
