In 2017, up to three 150-meter towers for broadcasting in the occupied Crimea are planned to be installed in Kherson region to increase the coverage of Ukrainian broadcasting for the peninsula, Sergey Kostinsky, a member of the National Council of Ukraine on Television and Radio Broadcasting, posted on his Facebook page.
The relevant decision was taken at a meeting of the National Council working group, finalizing the development of broadcasting strategy in the Kherson region, and the organization of broadcasting for Crimea.
"We have agreed that besides a 150-meter tower in Chonhar, 1 to 2 additional facilities, equal to or higher, will be installed next year," Kostinsky wrote.
He noted that the modified strategy will be presented in the city of Kherson on June 10.
It was reported earlier that a member of the National Council of Ukraine on Television and Radio Broadcasting Sergey Kostinsky claimed that the works on the development of broadcasting strategy in Crimea and Kherson region and relevant practical work are carried out simultaneously.
According to him, they have thought out how to organize FM broadcasting for Crimea from Kherson region, as well as how to impose sanctions on licensees of Roskomnadzor (the Russia’s Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media), which use Ukrainian radio frequencies for broadcasting on the peninsula.
