Generally, the history of Transcarpathian print journalism of the twentieth century is primarily the history of "Zakarpatka" because everything was spinning around it: it trained journalists, who later would work in other newspapers. In 5 years, this newspaper will be 100 years old - a landmark date which we must prepare for."
During the meeting, it was stressed that "Zakarpatska Pravda" is the first newspaper of the region that was published in modern Ukrainian literary language, and the only regional publication in Ukraine which came out 6 times a week.
