Sputznik's association with YKA began in 2013, when we began engaging with the website's technicalities for optimization and expansion, as it gained traction in the online media space of the country. By 2015 it was clear that this was not just another citizen journalism website, but needed to be a full fledged publishing platform that was accessible to the internet youth for both reading and writing. Since then Sputznik has handled YKA's entire technology requirements. From server management to front-end publishing for its users. The system runs on the WordPress ecosystem with almost all features developed from scratch by us to have more control on performance, security and flexibility.
