UkROSTA (All-Ukrainian Bureau of the Russian Telegraph Agency)
УкРОСТА (Всеукраинского бюро Российского телеграфного агентства)

UkROSTA was founded in January 1920 on the existing Bureau of the Ukrainian Press (1918-1919). With the creation of the Telegraph Agency of the USSR (TASS) in 1925, UkROSTA lost most of its functions. Like its Russian counterpart, UkROSTA utilized artistic brigades to produce its posters. By the mid-1930s, the office of UkROSTA in Kiev was limited to disseminating news pertaining to the Soviet Ukraine.
