It is still possible to tune in to Ukrainian radio on the territory of the Russian-annexed Crimea. Serhiy Kostynsky, the member of Ukraine's National Council for TV and Radio Broadcasting posted this on Facebook.
'UA: Ukrainian radio (the pro-government radio station, - 112 International), along with Radio Krym.Realii continues to conduct its information mission in Crimea', Kostynsky wrote. He uploaded a video on his page, which clearly shows that the evening programme of Ukrainian radio was heard in Simferopol at the frequency of 549 kHz.
Earlier, the official wrote that in October, 75 percent of the public broadcasting content in Crimea will be in the Ukrainian language.
Previously, 112 International reported that the final state of the implementation of the quotas for the Ukrainian-language songs and programs at radio began in Ukraine. Besides, the volume of Ukrainian-language broadcasting content on TV became 98% after language quotas were adopted that is 23% more than the established quotas required.
In accordance with the law "On Amending Certain Laws of Ukraine on the Language of Audiovisual (Electronic) Media," all TV channels are required to observe a quota of 75% of Ukrainian-language broadcasts during the week between next hours 07:00 -18:00 and 18:00-22:00 on nationwide TV channels. For regional TV channels, the quota is reduced to 60%, although in the first reading this figure ever reached 50%. But this was not applied to news.
