Detailed on a media registration
In what form can mass media exist?
Unfortunately, our legislation currently only provides for the registration of print media. The most common types of print media are magazines and newspapers.
The registration of the mass media is confirmed by the certificate of state registration of the printed mass media, which is issued by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine.
Publication of printed mass media registered in Ukraine is carried out in the state language. It is also possible to publish in other languages besides Ukrainian.
State registration of print mass media whose name contains symbols of communist and/or national socialist (Nazi) totalitarian regimes, symbols of the military invasion of the Russian Nazi totalitarian regime in Ukraine is prohibited.
If you plan to run an electronic publication, we recommend registering an information agency.
Who can create print media?
The right to create a printed mass media has:
- citizen of Ukraine;
- foreigners and stateless persons;
- legal entities of Ukraine and other states;
- labor teams of enterprises, institutions and organizations.
The relationship between the co-founders regarding the establishment and operation of the print mass media is regulated by the founding agreement concluded between them.
If one of the co-founders is an individual, the founding agreement is notarized.
If the founding documents are drawn up in a foreign language, they are submitted for state registration together with their translation into Ukrainian, which is notarized.
