Broadcasting Ukrainian TV channels and radio on the territory of the occupied Crimea is to start in 2018 and will be operated from two television towers, as Serhiy Kostynskiy, member of the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting, wrote on Facebook.
In order for the signal to get to the occupied territory, the height of two towers will be increased. All of the works will be finished by the middle of 2018.
In particular, the television tower in Chaplyntsi, Kherson region, will be increased from 92 to 133 metres. This way, five Ukrainian TV channels and seven radio stations will get their signal in Crimea.
The second tower, Chonhar, is already broadcasting in Crimea, but only in the text format.
