Users of ukwiki still live in a small world. In raliity they also use other
wikis that already have the VisualEditor, and use these wikis with the
Ukrainian interface (for example when editing in a Russian or English wiki
that already has the VisualEditor... or multilingual wikis like Commons and

Ukrainian wikis will also have the VisualEditor by default (once the most
problematic cases will have been addressed), even if there are many users
that wil lstill want to continue wit the WikiCode editor.

Tech News are not made to focus a single wiki, they contain updates that
help users monitor changes in multiple wikis (even if they are not all
deployed at the sam time, they want to be informed when this will happen
sooner or later and comment about it early before they are deployed in
their native language wiki).

Tech News are also read directly in Meta and Commons by Ukrainians where
there are subcribed community pages that receive these updates. The
VisualEditor is being made to be usable in all UI languages and many wiki
users are navigating across wikis even if they keep their own native
language for the UI.
