MOSCOW, JUNE 17, 2021 — In Luxembourg, Russia's RT global television news network applied for a broadcast license.

As announced in January 2021, RT is set to expand its multi-language TV news coverage, and start broadcasting in German this December. In compliance with the Directive 2010/13/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council from 10 March 2010, RT filed an application with the Luxembourg authorities on June 15 to obtain a broadcast license. The TV signal will be transmitted from Moscow via a satellite under the temporary name RT auf Deutsch.

RT's sister company that operates in Germany, RT DE Productions GmbH, plans to subsequently send news reports, talk-shows and exclusive interviews to Moscow directly from Berlin.
