Russian troops shelled a television tower in Bilopylla (Sumy oblast) on May 6; the TV tower was damaged by the strike and is currently disabled, reports a representative of the Institute of Mass Information.

The video of the impact of the strike was uploaded to Russian propaganda channels on Telegram. The occupiers reported hitting the tower with high-explosive aerial bombs-500 (FAB).

"Footage of enemy objects' loss: a cell tower, an army deployment point, an elevator with an electronic warfare system installed, a warehouse with ammunition, and a substation," the Russians wrote.

The Ukrainian side has not yet commented on the extent of the damage.

It will be recalled that the Russian army fired at least four times on the television tower in Bilopyl. For the first time - March 9, 2022. In June 2023, the TV tower shut down again due to a Russian attack.

On March 14, 2024, the Russian troops shelled the largest TV and radio transmitters in Sumy oblast: in Bilopillya, Sumy, Shostka, and Trostyanets. MH-1 and MH-2 broadcasting in Bilopillya was resumed in early April, reported Larysa Yakubenko, representative of the National Council for Television and Radio Broadcasting.
