Digital broadcasting disabled in Kharkiv due to the TV tower strike

23.04.2024, 12:17

The shelling strike on the Kharkiv TV tower resulted in digital broadcasting disappearing in the city and the nearby municipalities.

This was reported on Telegram by the Kharkiv Oblast Military Administration chair Oleh Synehubov on April 23.

According to him, the Russian troops hit the TV tower with an Kh-59 missile.

"The total height of the tower before the strike was 250 meters. The impact was at about 140 meters high. Technical premises are damaged. Specialists are assessing the damage to the television equipment," he wrote.

Synehubov noted that Kharkiv residents can connect to cable and satellite TV. Radio, the Internet, and mobile connection are in order.


On April 22, the Russian troops targeted a TV tower in Kharkiv, destroying it. People reported interruptions in the digital television signal.

The Kharkiv Oblast Prosecutor's Office opened a case over the April 22 shelling strike on the Kharkiv television tower.

The Russians resumed the shelling of Ukrainian TV and radio infrastructure in 2024.

Previously, the IMI recorded such incidents back at the beginning of the full-scale invasion in 2022 (back then, 16 cases of the Russians shelling TV towers, which are civilian objects, were recorded).

In March 2024, the Russian troops deliberately struck TV infrastructure in Kharkiv oblast with drones. They also carried out missile and air strikes on the radio facilities in the Sumy oblast, leaving some municipalities without TV or radio signal. Later, Suspilne reported that due to the strikes their T2 TV channels and radio channels were temporarily unavailable in both oblasts.

The Kharkiv Oblast Military Administration chair Oleh Syneguhov said that the Russians deliberately mass targeted the television and radio infrastructure of Kharkiv Oblast with drones on the night of March 14.
