Communication, communications, mass-media
If to compare resort settlements, seaside villages and country small towns of Sevastopol with Southern and even Southeast coast development of a communication facility here is more modest. Call boxes with the international digital communication are only in the city of Sevastopol, Balaklave, Inkermane, and in other places only at large health resorts. Sending cards or letters, ask necessarily the employee of mail, what marks on them to glue. Stamps of Ukraine are issued with an alphabetic index. The price for them is not specified. Pay attention that in the address as it is accepted in the West European countries, in the beginning it is necessary to write a surname, street, a city, the country and the postal index of the sender. You can specify the address of constant residing or the address where have a rest. But only by the Ukrainian rules. With Russian here any problems. Then in the same order – the address of the addressee. If the address of the addressee you write Latin letters more low in Russian or on-ukrainski it is necessary to write once again the city and country name.
The Mobile communication because of complexities of a relief of region works at coast not everywhere. The reliable communication – in call boxes. For communication with Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Moldova the Ukrtelecom sells special preferential electronic cards. Roaming with mobile operators of Russia and other countries works reliably. To buy for the period of rest of a card of local mobile operators since a season of 2004 it be not become absolutely defensible in May holidays and a high season. Because of high flow of tourists communication channels are overloaded, so even sms-messages can be late on two days. Rather reliable it is possible to name only the operator "-шхтё=рЁ". The new operator "-рщ¶" works while in a test mode, but constantly expands a network of stations. Probably, the situation will improve.
Newspapers, magazines and TV of Sevastopol practise only Russian. In the Ukrainian language there are weekly telecasts of studio of the Black Sea fleet of Ukraine. There is also one Ukrainian nationalist newspaper – it leaves time in three months and is distributed free of charge during city holidays. Be not surprised, if you with it will award. Eventually, many heroes of Sevastopol whom it is considered to be Russian, were all the same Ukrainians, for example, the sailor the Cat.
Now (since summer of 2005) it is necessary Commercial radio stations of Sevastopol di-dzhejnichat and to start advertising only in the Ukrainian language, differently it are threatened with licence loss. It to very few people is convenient, especially to advertisers. But tourists have an additional possibility to study derzhavnu a speech.
