Crimean Tatar will become the language for state broadcast for the first time in the country

UATV channel (“Ukraine Tomorrow”) started broadcasting in Crimean Tatar for occupied Crimea and abroad, as reported on Facebook by Serhiy Kostynskiy, a member of the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to 112 Ukraine TV Channel.

“Recently UATV channel which provides overseas service started broadcasting Ukrainian news in Crimean Tatar – for Crimean Tatar diaspora,” Kostynskiy reported.

According to Serhiy, this is the first time when the state prioritized Crimean Tatar as the language of state broadcast through the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine.

“This broadcast is not only for countries abroad; it is also for Crimea. I am sincerely happy that the National Council is also a part of this event. Recently the license for abroad broadcast has been granted to the “Multimedia platform of international broadcasting”, on basis of which UTAV broadcasts overseas and within Crimea,” he noted.
