Russia's Voice radio station gets right to broadcast in Germany

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.
