Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov told journalists during his visit to the training center of KORD police special operations force (Vita-Poshtova village in Kyiv-Sviatoshynskyi district of the Kyiv region).
According to him, the domestically developed information security systems are "capable to efficiently jam broadcasting of the anti-Ukrainian television and radio, selectively blocking both analog and digital channels spreading separatist and pro-Russian propaganda. They will also not be interfering with the operation of Ukrainian TV and radio," Censor.NET reports citing the press office of the NSDC.
Turchynov notes that first this technology, which is "much cheaper than foreign alternatives," will be applied along the demarcation line, and after that it will be used all along the Ukrainian-Russian border.
The NSDC secretary expressed conviction that "soon residents of the occupied territories who live 30-50 km away from the demarcation line will be able to listen to the Ukrainian radio and watch Ukrainian TV channels."
Earlier, the leadership of the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection said it developed a detailed information security project "that will allow to block anti-Ukrainian television and radio along the demarcation line in the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) zone."
Given the urgent nature of this task, the NSDC secretary proposed Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman to allocate funds necessary for implementation of this project from the government reserve fund.
