Russia Today Channel Begins Broadcasting in Czech Republic


02.02.2010

A Czech company UPS begins broadcasting of a Russia Today channel in the Czech Republic, the website prague-express.cz reports. Russia Today will be included in Standard and Supreme packages of the digital channel. Of note, Czech cable networks stopped broadcasting Russian-language channels in 2006.

The English-language Russia Today launched its trial broadcast on September 14, 2005 and switched to official broadcasting in December 2005. The channel aims at promoting Russia’s viewpoint on the international policy and to keep the audience updated on Russia’s life and the country-related events.

Meet BRICS Art is an international project that brings together artists from Russia, Brazil, China, India, and South Africa. Their virtual exhibition was opened in January. In addition, the project participants will hold online discussions. For example, they will discuss how artists can participate in the design of the cities of the future for the BRICS countries. Anna Kurumchina, director of the Agency for Cultural and Science Diplomacy (Yekaterinburg) and the organizer of the exhibition, shared the details of the international project.
Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
