MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) - The 3rd international congress of Russian language broadcasters is opening in Moscow on Saturday with tens of electronic media, television companies and radio stations from 30 countries taking part.
The current condition of Russian language mass media operating in other countries tops the agenda, the organizing committee told ITAR-TASS.
“The congress is expected to consolidate the global Russian world, contribute to bolstering the unity of the Russian language media community, promote the status of the Russian language as a means of inter-ethnic communication in countries that are Russia’s near neighbours and elsewhere, and establish a mechanism of business and cultural interaction in the professional media environment and the audiences of broadcasters using the Russian language in other countries,” the organizers said.
The congress’s work schedule includes a number of discussions on ways of promoting interaction by journalists working abroad. The leading Russian radio companies will hold presentations concerning new broadcasting formats and interactive participation with the audiences.
The number of radio stations broadcasting in Russian outside Russia number 300. The readership of Russian language media abroad is estimated at 300 million people in 80 countries.
“It is these media that work as cultural hubs linking compatriots, help them hear each other, express viewpoints on a variety of common problems,” the organizing committee said.
The forum was arranged for by the International Association of Russian Broadcasters. It has been held annually since 2011 with support from the federal mass communications agency Rospechat and the radio broadcasting company The Voice of Russia.
