monitoring mission of the Ministry of information policy of Ukraine made a
visit to Zhelanniv village council of Yasynuvata district of Donetsk region, where an analysis of
the information space was conducted. Chairman of the village council Vira Cheremisova noted that the
village has a digital television "T2", which includes more than 60
channels: half of them are Ukrainian, another part - the separatists' TV.
"T2" simultaneously accepts the signal from the Ukrainian
transmitter in Pokrovsk, and from the occupied
residents have access to Ukrainian TV channels via on-air broadcasting, but in
small numbers, including "1+1" and "DoTebe".
The distance to the occupied TV tower is short, so the Pro-Russian TV, of
course, is received better here”, says Cheremisova. “People start using "T2" and the
satellite antennas due to weak Ukrainian signal, but not all can afford it.
Only 40% of the population have satellite television.
We are all waiting for intensification of essential signal and activation of
intelligence services work on jamming the channels of the enemy".
Brygynets, Advisor to the Minister on broadcasting
renewal in ATO zone (MP of Ukraine) notes, that detected problem can be solved
by the construction of a new TV tower in Pokrovsk.
"This issue has long been initiated by MIP, and supported by the Cabinet
of Ministers, but funding is still not found. I, as an MP, has already
repeatedly addressed with requests to expedite funding, but so far no positive
results achieved", said Oleksandr Brygynets.
the Commission on ensuring stable operation of national television and radio
broadcasting under MIP has initiated the construction of three TV towers in ATO
zone. One of which is under construction on the Karachun
mountain, the second will be provided by the partners
and installed in Luhansk region, and the third is
planned to be constructed in Pokrovsk of Donetsk
region. This will not only provide access to a full Ukrainian broadcasting in
the liberated territories but also will spread the signal to the occupied
