Independent ecological coverage has developed in the Ukraine only since the end of the 1980’s. This depends strongly on development of the environmental policy. The organization of this politics field has been partly determined by international influences and the Chernobyl catastrophe. Without press there would be no communication to the citizens, no criticism and inspection of the exercise of power. Ecological coverage can be seen as a contribution to democratic policy.
