Special transmission for Ukriane on LW

- On LW 153 kHz, Romania has replaced its program "Antena Satelor" with the news and pop & rock channel "Radio Romania Actualitati".

- On LW 225 kHz, Polish radio started broadcasting a few minutes newspaper in Ukraine twice a day, seven out of seven days, right after the "Jedynka News", at 10:00 and 5:00 p.m. (Ukraine Time= UTC+2)

These two broadcasters want to take advantage of the extraordinary coverage provided by long wave transmitters that cover, from home, the entire territory of Ukraine.
