 Армія FM begins in Ukraine

BCDX has also reported that the Ukrainian Ministry Defence radio station Aрмія FM (Army FM) has received a one-year approval to broadcast on 810 kHz with 10 kW. The National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine granted the permit for a temporary period.

 A schedule was not included, but the information did state that programming will air from Hirnyk, located west of Donetsk. This is likely due to the pro-Russian separatists occupying this area.
