Congratulations to Public Television of Russia (OTR) on its fifth anniversary

May 19, 2018

Vladimir Putin congratulated the Public Television of Russia (OTR) team on the fifth anniversary of the first broadcast.

The message reads, in part:

“Over the past five years, the OTR team has established its own recognisable style and launched a diversity of popular programmes, ranging from news and analytics to children’s shows and entertainment. Importantly, the channel is successfully implementing educational and patriotic projects and is always open to constructive discussions and differing points of view.

OTR’s popularity and success is a result of smooth and competent teamwork of the company’s professionals, who are thorough and passionate about their job.”

Public Television of Russia (OTR) went on air for the first time on May 19, 2013. OTR sees its mission in shaping and developing modern civil society and builds its activity on the principles of open cooperation between various social groups, subcultures, ethnicities and faiths.
