The state broadcasting company Russia's Voice became the first Russian radio station, having the official right to broadcast in Germany.
The relevant five-year license was given to the head of the Russia's Voice radio company Armen Oganesyan by Berlin-Brandenburg authorities on Thursday, Russia's Voice told RIA Novosti.
The licence gives the right of middle-wave broadcasting all over Germany. Radio programmes will be broadcast in the German, Russian and English languages for 18 hours a day.
"This is a particularly important event for the promotion of Russian radio products in Europe. Our new information possibilities are a result of significant progress in Russian-German relations," Armen Oganesyan noted.
German company T-systems of the Deutsche-Telecom concern will be the main partner of Russia's Voice in the implementation of the broadcasting project.
