The document was signed by Ukrinform Director General Oleksandr Kharchenko and Xinhua editor-in-chief He Ping.

"It is important that the world know the truth about everything that is happening in Ukraine and that it know this truth not through mediators, not through people who, using the latest technological achievements, turn them into manipulation and ideological aggression," the Ukrinform chief said.

The Xinhua editor-in-chief, in turn, congratulated the Ukrainian agency on the 100th anniversary of its foundation and noted that "cooperation with Ukrinform is extremely important."

He Ping expressed hope that the agreement signed in Kyiv would deepen bilateral cooperation, which began 26 years ago, and would create "an extremely good platform for the future."
