Prosecutors open a case over Kharkiv TV tower strike

23.04.2024, 11:58

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

As reported by the prosecutors, a pre-trial investigation into an act of violation of the laws and customs of war (Part 1 of Article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine) has been initiated.

Prosecutors and police investigators documented the impact of Russia's armed aggression.

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

The Russians have 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.
