MIP in JFO Zone: In Sviatohorivka Settlement Council, More Than Five Ukrainian TV Channels Available
The Monitoring Mission of the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine has analyzed television and radio broadcasting in Sviatohorivka Settlement Council of Dobropillia District, Donetsk Region.
“Despite its name, the [settlement] is situated in a pit, and terrestrial broadcasting is not quite common. But it allows watching enough channels, including UA:First, 1+1, ICTV, New Channel, and Inter,” reports Oleksandr Bryhynets, the Adviser to the Minister of Information Policy on Broadcasting Renewal, Ukraine’s MP, who leads the Mission.
According to Viktor Beliankin, the head of the settlement council, nearly 40 percent of the residents have access to Ukrainian digital television thanks to the governmental programme. Also, around half the population of the settlement traditionally watch satellite television.
It should be noted that during two years of the work of the Commission on Ensuring the Stable Broadcasting of the National Television and Radio Broadcasting System of Ukraine, three television towers have been constructed: in Kramatorsk, Donetsk Oblast (5 December 2016), in Chonhar, Kherson Oblast (17 March 2017), and in Bakhmutivka, Luhansk Oblast (22 August 2017).
