For 26 years, the Kyiv Post has been one Ukraine’s most important independent media voices in any language and an indefatigable standard bearer of journalistic standards. This role remains important, and we hope a way can be found to allow the paper to continue playing this role in the future," the Embassy said on Twitter Tuesday.
