Connection restored in Kherson and parts of Zaporizhzhia oblasts — Special Communication Service
Last week reports came in that russian occupation forces had cut off mobile and internet connection in Kherson and parts of Zaporizhzhia region. As of this morning, all the mobile network operators have restored the connection in these regions by using backup power supply channels.
Yuriy Schyhol, Head of the State Special Communications Service said so at a briefing at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform
«Since the beginning of the war we have seen cyber-attacks on major media. As of today, over 20 TV and radio transmitters have been destroyed. We saw what occupiers were doing to the communication infrastructure in Irpin and Bucha. Last week reports came in about mobile and internet connection in Kherson region and parts of Zaporizhzhia oblasts being cut off by russian occupation army. The disconnection was caused by breakdowns of fiber-optic cables and cut-offs of power supply to operators’ equipment in the area,» — he said.
According to Yuriy Schyhol, this was another attempt by the enemy to leave our citizens without information. They don’t abandon hope that the Ukrainian people can be fooled with distorted information as easily as their own.
«As of this morning, all mobile network operators have restored connections in these oblasts by using backup power supply channels. It is quite difficult. Communication experts, including mobile network operators, are working under fire,» — Special Communication Service Head noted.
Yuriy Schyhol said that the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine had received the information that the occupiers were trying to connect communication centers to Crimea.
«They are blocking our communication channels and trying to spread only russian services. This is a blatant violation of international law, and we have already asked the International Telecommunication Union to condemn russia’s actions and strip them of the membership in the union,» — he added.
