As reported by Censor.NET referring to Ukraine's Defense Intelligence, the analog signals of 1+1 and Novyi Kanal TV stations received in occupied settlements in the vicinity of Mariupol were jammed on Sept. 2 with the help of special equipment supplied at the personal request of Putin's adviser Vladislav Surkov. This equipment is operated solely by Russian experts, while the selection of TV content is carried out by disinformation and counterpropaganda department officers of the Information Warfare Center of the Southern Military District of the Russian Armed Forces.
In addition, 32 digitally broadcast Ukrainian TV channels have been blocked in the occupied Donbas and replaced by 37 Russian stations.
