Taras Bachynskyy: 2019 LEGAL FORECAST

Issue 119, January 2019.
Ukrainian legal services market has been growing rapidly in recent years. Experts estimate it to be worth between $500-700 million a year (for comparison, Germany’s is worth $27 billion and more than $100 billion in the USA).

Double act educating Ukrainian TV audiences on international affairs

Issue 119, January 2019.
With Ukraine currently at the center of a geopolitical showdown between Russia and the Western world, it has never been more important for Ukrainian audiences to have a solid grasp of contemporary international affairs. This is where TV presenter double act Peter Zalmayev and Taras Berezovets aim to make their mark. The duo host weekly news review show The Week on Ukraine’s Pryamiy channel. Each Saturday evening, they seek to provide analysis of the biggest global headlines from the past week, with a particular focus on Russian hybrid war activities around the world that serve as extensions or echoes of Ukraine’s own struggle with the Kremlin. “One of our main goals is to be educational,” says Berezovets. “This often means providing our viewers with the necessary background and explaining the broader context of international events. After all, politics does not exist in a vacuum.”
