Stand with Ukraine – Sunday 21st May at 3pm

Radio Bath is delighted to host the next instalment of our Stand With Ukraine series, supporting Ukrainian refugees in the area. The show is broadcast entirely in the Ukrainian language.

There are around 2000 Ukrainian people currently living within our area, and we are proud to provide content, especially for them.

Zhenya Shkil presents this show and is a local resident of Ukrainian origin, who has been an activist and a member of the movement known as Bath Stands With Ukraine, from the first days of the war. She has recently also become Ambassador of the City of Oleksandriya in the UK.

“When Radio Bath launched on 5th November 2020, the station’s aim was to become a voice for Bath and beyond, a place where local businesses, charities and organisations could come on air and share their story.

“We couldn’t have imagined that less than 2 years later, Bath and North East Somerset and Wiltshire would welcome refugees from Ukraine – Ukrainian citizens forced to leave their homes because of war. Our aim is to be available to all communities across our coverage area.”

Steve Fountain – Content Director & Founder of Radio Bath

The show will play Ukrainian music, talk to Ukrainians about British culture, local events and share advice and answer any questions.
