Military Administration: TV tower destroyed by Russians in Kharkiv to be restored after war

The TV tower in Kharkiv destroyed by Russians on April 22 will be restored after the war, but it is not advisable now given the security situation.

The head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration, Oleh Syniehubov, said this on the air of the United News telethon, a Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"If we talk about the structure itself, then, probably, yes, it will be restored after the war, because it was almost 250 meters high. That's why restoration work is probably inappropriate now. As for the functionality of the tower, we have started to eliminate the consequences," said Syniehubov.
