The message reads, in part:
“Since you went on air on June 9, 1997, your company has gained strong positions in the industry and has become a leading television network in Russia.
You have millions of fans in Russia and many other countries, who love to watch your programmes, from information and analysis shows to children’s and entertainment programmes. But your programmes about the socio-political, economic and cultural life in Moscow attract the greatest share of viewers.
As I see it, your popularity and relevance are the result of coordinated and competent efforts by top professionals who know and love their work.”
TVC streams its programmes to 85 Russian regions with an estimated audience of over 103 million people. Its international programmes are broadcast to the CIS and Baltic countries, Eastern and Western Europe, Canada, the United States, the Middle East and North Africa.
