Those who read this probably don’t care about such loss, because they don’t watch TV. But two-thirds of Ukrainians do it, and to lose TV means to loose the main window in the world. These people should be informed. During the Maidan, we had information sheets-wall newspapers for entrance halls; maybe we will have to do this again. Oh, fuck, I’m going to buy a second-hand printer.
It is also possible that in the occupied cities, the Russians will take control of the TV broadcasting infrastructure and start playing edited videos with messages from the Ukrainian authorities about their surrender. I think that deepfaked Zelensky in their performance will be too stupid for our people to believe in, but still, in information isolation, this can affect someone. It is important now, while the entire country is still connected, to broadcast the main thesis to everyone: if you hear a message that Ukraine has surrendered, this is a lie. Abdication is impossible. We’ll never give up.
