The audience should be progressively introduced to high-quality content in Ukrainian, and we should promote and foster new talent from Ukraine. This case, like esports in general, will become an important tool for popularizing the Ukrainian language among young people and Ukrainian casters, which can push them to improve their knowledge of their native language. In the future, thanks to joint efforts with our partners at WePlay Esports and other companies, we plan a lot of fun national and international events, which will become an additional incentive for creating high-quality Ukrainian-language content,” says Ivan Danishevsky, Head of the Board UESF.
