Attention! New phone codes become active from 14 October

  • Attention! New phone codes become active from 14 October
Issue 17, October 2009.

On 14 October some major changes will be introduced into the codes used to make inter-city and international calls from Ukraine. For landline calls the ‘8’ which had previously been a required prefix will no longer be used, while for international calls the old 8-10 prefix will be replaced by the EU standard 00. These changes have been introduced in order to bring Ukraine’s phone network into line with existing European Union regulations, but will not affect calls being made to Ukraine from outside the country.
