Ukrainian radio stationsin Crimea disrupted with signal from Russian stations - human rights activist

26.04.2019, 17:15
According to the monitoring carried out by the Crimean Human Rights Group, the radio signal of seven radio stations coming from a tower in Chaplink (Kherson region) to the Crimea occupied by Russia does not get through in 18 of the 20 settlements in the north peninsulas in which research was conducted,as to QHA. Iryna Sedova, coordinator of the media direction of the Crimean Right-Wing Group, told about the monitoring on the radio “Hayat”. We tried to catch the signal at the frequencies of seven Ukrainian radio stations. And were able to catch the signal of two stations only in two settlements. It is on those frequencies on which Ukrainian radio stations should be that Russian stations broadcast, the human rights activist said. For example, according to her, instead of “Radio Meydan” one can listen to “Sputnik in Crimea”, and instead of “Perec. FM” there is Russian “Radio More.” Only the Ukrainian “Radio Culture” gets through in two settlements out of 20, the Russian “Radio Crimea” operates on the same frequency in 17 settlements. “This is a serious violation of international declarations prohibiting such actions,” Sedova stressed. In December 2018, QHA media reported that the monitoring of the Crimean human rights group recorded the absence of a signal from Ukrainian FM radio stations in at least ten localities in the north of Crimea annexed by Russia.
