Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s greetings to Konstantin Ernst on the 25th anniversary of launching Channel One’s foreign broadcasts, Moscow, November 27, 2020
TO KONSTANTIN ERNST, CEO OF CHANNEL ONE
On behalf of the Foreign Ministry’s team and myself, I would like to cordially congratulate you and all Channel One employees on a landmark date, the 25th anniversary of the launch of foreign broadcasts.
During the 25 years of its fruitful work, Channel One. Worldwide Network has asserted itself in the global media space as an influential Russian-language source of authentic and objective information. Today, this highly popular resource offers the most topical materials on the most important events in Russia and elsewhere to a broad audience and enables millions of compatriots in various parts of the world to maintain ties with their historical Motherland. I would like to single out the KATYUSHA project whose implementation helps popularise the Russian language and Russian culture in the People’s Republic of China in every way.
The Foreign Ministry appreciates partner-like cooperation with Channel One. We are ready to continue this cooperation in the interests of further promoting Russia’s unbiased global image and strengthening the atmosphere of friendship, trust and mutual understanding on the international scene.
I wish you and your entire team health, prosperity, new creative achievements and all the best.
