there is Ukrainian language and it`s different (that`s older, and more likely Polish, Russian in younger, the language formed as it is right now in late XVIII century), but almost all Ukrainians speak Кussian due to USSR, so they can deside, which language to choose 4 their magazine. Vogue chosen Russian. however, language is very vexed point in Urkaine

I find it odd. Its almost like having 2 Vogue Russias then I dont see a point in having a Vogue for a certain country if you already have it in the same language, isnt the whole point of doing different Vogues to have a broader market? There already is a Russian speaking market covered with Vogue Russia. Ive seen alot of fashion magazines in Ukraine written in Russian, is it because it is presented as a cooler language or what? Is there anybody from Ukraine to express their toughts on the topic? Im really interested to hear why you think they chose Russian to write in?

I know what the deal is with politics and the history, im not interested in discussing that, im interested in opinions of how Ukrainian people see it and wether it makes sense for them and Vogue.
Vogue obvously made a choice but Im struggling to find the logic behind it, why do you think they chose Russian? Is it more cool?

Who cares what language the magazine is written in? (From an outsiders perspective, of course). It's a new magazine on the market, which I applaud, given the amount that have folded within such a short period of time. It's fantastic to hear the magazine industry is getting back on its feet. I'm sure the Ukrainians will be thrilled with their new Vogue.. just as the Thai are with theirs.

Outstanding cover with Daria here, it's a spring version of her Vogue Paris September 2012 cover by Mert & Marcus, no? I'm impressed.

The question of the language has been presented to the EIC as it has apparently become one of the most discussed issues since the magazine's launch. EIC said the following: "When people start buying press in Ukrainian, then magazines like Vogue will be in Ukrainian. As soon as the first happens, the second will immediately follow. Meanwhile, we want to make profit for the publisher."

Of course, this then has raised another question, how can people buy press like Vogue in Ukrainian, when all press, Vogue and others like it are in Russian. Seems it's a bit of a chicken or egg problem. Thus far, from what I can tell, the language issue is the only negative feedback that the magazine has received in Ukraine.

If any magazine then Vogue could have contributed so much to the issue of buying press in Ukrainian if only it was in Ukrainian...

It does make sense for the reason MatCuryss stated, but I was simply surprised when I heard it was going to be in Russian (simply from Ukrainian point of view, I don't personally care, I speak niether Russian nor Ukrainian, as well as I rarely buy Russian glossies)...It's the same in Kazakhstan - I noticed there are H.Bazaar and Cosmopolitan, both printed in Russian, not Kazakh.

I don't understand how Irina Kravchenko wasn't included in this issue, she's a rising star now for sure
