The signal of seven Ukrainian radio stations in 20 settlements in the north Crimea is completely or partially jammed by a signal of Russian radio stations. This is evidenced by the Crimean Human Rights Group, conducted in March-April 2019.

In the course of the monitoring, specialists checked 13 frequencies of seven Ukrainian radio stations, which received permission from the National TV and Radio Company to broadcast in the North Crimea from the Chongar and Chaplynka villages controlled by Ukraine.

"The monitoring is organized with the help of car stereos in the settlements of North Crimea, located near the checkpoint Chaplynka," Crimean Human Rights Group reported.

The checking was carried out in 20 settlements.

As we reported, the Ukrainian media that broadcast to the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as well as to the territory of the annexed Crimea, would conduct 75% of their broadcasting in the Ukrainian language. The member of the National Council of Ukraine on TV and Radio Broadcasting Serhiy Kostinsky told about it.

Also, 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.
