Ukraine’s best athletes added one gold, one silver and one bronze medal in last week’s competition at the London 2012 Olympics. The nation had won 10 medals – three gold, one silver and six bronze – by the time this edition of the Kyiv Post went to press. The honors put Ukraine 16th among nations in the overall medal count. The games end Aug. 12.

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
