Greetings on 55th anniversary of Ostankino TV tower

November 5, 2022

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to the staff and former workers of the Ostankino TV tower and all employees of the Russian Television and Radio Broadcasting Network, television and radio on the 55th anniversary of the Ostankino TV tower’s operation.

The message reads, in part:

“The unique Ostankino TV tower was built thanks to the bold idea and the creative talent and innovations of scientists, designers, architects, workers and communications experts. Importantly, this strategic facility has made a tremendous contribution throughout its history to the development of Russian television and radio broadcasting and the establishment of a unified information space in Russia. It has served as an experimental site for testing and introducing advanced technologies in mass communications and creating additional services for various agencies and structures. And obviously, the Ostankino TV tower is a well-known, distinctive symbol of our capital, a famous tourist landmark.”
