"Public dialogue in Ukraine is still destroyed by the political directors and the principle of 'two ways'. The first one is 'for', and the other - 'against'. We used to ignore white lies, doubts or lack of information. In society there exists more than just two points of view. People must be taught, listened to, and accepted. That is why the potential for Hromadske Radio is huge.
Our client is the audience, and all journalists think the same. But not all owners are willing to finance talks about interests, experiences, or enjoyments of the audience. In our team this problem does not exist. We report for every hryvnya."
