The World: Kiev - VHB plans to launch Delo daily newspaper in Ukraine

The German publisher Verlagsgruppe Handelsblatt is launching a daily newspaper in the Ukraine, called Delo.

Ekonomica, VHB's Russian publishing arm, which was launched in July this year, will publish the title. A Russian version of the newspaper was launched earlier in the month.

The content will be split between two eight-page sections: the first will cover news, politics, sports, lifestyle and comment, while the second will handle business and financial news.

Ekonomica's portfolio also includes the fortnightly magazine Marketing Media Review and the weekly titles Invest Gazetta and Ukrajinskaja.
