The resumption of Ukrainian broadcasting on the territory of Kherson region and Crimea was discussed during the round table entitled "Information Security and Countering Information Aggression" held with the participation of Adviser to the Minister of Information Policy Emine Dzheppar on April 11, the press service of the Kherson Regional State Administration reports.

According to Olga Savenko, Director of the Department for Internal and Information Policy, a 150-meter tall broadcasting tower is due to be built in the city of Henichesk, Kherson region. Search for a plot of land is underway.

“Of course, there are many obstacles toward this goal. For example, to change the transmitter it is necessary to amend the license for broadcasting on the appropriate frequency. In our case - it is a branch of the National Television Company of Ukraine (NTCU), Kherson Regional Directorate ‘Scythia,’ which programs will be transmitted with a stronger signal,” said Savenko.

She also noted that the corresponding letter to amend the existing license has already been sent to the Ukrainian Ministry of Information Policy and the National Council of Ukraine on Television and Radio Broadcasting.
