Welcome to the UBJ!

To get the very best from the UBJ, we ask you to read the following:

The UBJ is a subscription-based, daily, internet business news service reporting on new investments and new investors, on the opportunities and obstacles in Ukraine, Europe’s new ‘Frontier Economy'. Experienced Western business journalists report and edit the UBJ specifically for investors and managers in Ukraine and overseas.

The architecture of the UBJ is national. Believing Ukraine’s economic recovering is taking place across this massive nation, fulltime business journalists work in Ukraine’s five largest cities -- Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Odessa and Lviv-- reporting stories to the UBJ Newsroom in Kyiv, the capital.

UBJ is a business publication that will only address political, social or cultural issues where they are relevant to the business and investment environment. UBJ will not sensationalize or editorialize with personal opinion. While we will not shy away from controversial issues we will report in the public interest, calmly, in context and from a constructive point of view, seeking opinion from a full spectrum of interests. UBJ reports will be short, sharp, and accurate, written to help you make informed business decisions based on facts..

Our mission

To report useful business news stories from all across Ukraine freely and fairly, honestly, accurately, constructively and realistically reporting on Ukraine’s successes, opportunities and obstacles.
