MIP: Staryi Krym Residents Opt for Ukrainian TV
The Monitoring Mission of the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine has analyzed television and radio broadcasting in the settlement Staryi Krym of Donetsk Oblast.
The monitoring revealed that there were no problems regarding the broadcasting of Ukrainian TV and radio channels.
“In the settlement, around a dozen Ukrainian channels in good quality, as well as the digital television, T2, are accessible,” reports Oleksandr Bryhynets, Adviser to the Minister on Broadcasting Renewal in the ATO Zone, and people’s deputy of Ukraine, leading the Mission.
According to Mykhailo Balabanov, head of the Staryi Krym settlement council, the criterion of which media, Ukrainian or Russian, are preferable to the local residents, is as follows: The occupational channels can be watched only via satellite antenna.
And, in the settlement, only 30 or so from 1,800 households have installed satellite antennae.
“Thus, since the citizens have good-quality national television, they are not interested in the media of those behind the shelling of Staryi Krym,” said Balabanov.
It should be recalled that on 22 August 2017, a new 134-metre TV tower near the village Bakhmutivka of Novoaidar Raion, Luhansk Oblast, was officially opened.
The opening was attended by Ukrainian President Petro Portoshenko, Minister of Information Policy of Ukraine Yurii Stets, and other government officials.
