MOSCOW, May 4 (Itar-Tass) — The viewers of six Russian television channels will be able to see the ceremony of inauguration of Vladimir Putin as the RF president on May 7.
In addition to Channel One, Rossiya 1 and TV Centre that traditionally transmit live broadcasts of the presidential inauguration, this year this ceremony will also be shown by the Rossiya 24, NTV and Channel Five TV channels.
Channel Five will launch the special information marathon at 09:15 MSK. Within the framework of this project, the preparation for the ceremony at the Kremlin walls will be broadcast, and at 11:30 the TV cameras will be switched to the rooms inside the Kremlin, the channel's press service explained.
A representative of the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK) for his part told Itar-Tass that the ceremony of taking office by the RF president will be shown live on the Rossiya 1, Rossiya 24 TV channel and online on the Vesti.ru website. “Starting from 12:00, the live show commentator will be journalist Sergei Brilev,” he added.
The NTV channel will also show the president’s inauguration. Representatives of the channel said that the “broadcast of the ceremony in the Kremlin will be made in the same way as by other channels.” “Although the schedule specifies that the broadcast will begin at 11:40 MSK, the live broadcast will begin, naturally, when the ceremony starts. We will work in real time,” they explained. In addition, on May 7 the NTV channel at 21:20 will show a film about Vladimir Putin made by a German journalist.
