Summary/Abstract: After proclaiming its independence in 1991, Ukraine has launched the democratic transformations in each area of social life. The reform of the mass media and their market has been one of the most prioritised issues. Currently, the rapid intensification of media influence on the rise and development of new forms of democracy can be observed, especially on the example of democratic transformations within the Ukrainian society. Regional media, however, are still the only source of local news. In the context of transitions the downfall of the Soviet Union gave birth to, the role of the regional media, whose transformation goes along the rebirthing Ukrainian state, gains in importance. The paper covers the overview of the most significant changes within regional media in Ukraine after 1991.
