In Kakhovka district in the occupied part of Kherson oblast, Russian TV channels streamed the Ukrainian President's address.

Journalist Oleh Baturin reported this, citing locals living under occupation.

"Yesterday, in Kakhovka district in the occupied part of Kherson oblast, Russian TV channels (which the occupiers started broadcasting instead of Ukrainian ones in late March) streamed the New Year's address by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky approximately eight times since 19:00," the post reads.

As residents of the occupied part of Kherson oblast noted, people are grateful to those who hacked the Russian channels. The people of Kherson were watching the address and crying.

On March 3 in Kherson, the occupiers took over the premises of Suspilne branch, the staff continues to work remotely. Armed men set up trip wires around the building. In addition, the occupiers, who had seized the television studio and the TV center, cut off the Ukrainian television signal.

The Kherson Regional Prosecutor's Office has opened a criminal investigation into the seizure and mining of the Kherson branch of Suspilne Broadcaster by Russian security forces. The case has been opened under Art. 341, part 1 of Art. 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine: seizure of state or public buildings, facilities, as well as for violations of the laws and customs of war.

On May 11, the collaborators announced that the TV and radio company "Tavria" will start broadcasting in the region.

On May 16, Suspilne announced that the Russian military had looted the Suspilne Kherson branch and was using it as a basis to create a propaganda channel.

The building of Suspilne's Kherson branch was captured by the Russian military as soon as they entered the city. They set up one of their headquarters there. The equipment was taken away, the offices were "turned upside down", military equipment was stacked in the branch's courtyard, reported Suspilne correspondents.
