Our new partnership also means that BBC Russian-branded video clips will be made directly available to the users of other leading Russian news websites.
“This is a very welcome development, further extending the reach of our content and delivering to audiences the best of BBC news.”
Sarah Gibson, Head of BBC Russian, comments: "Video is taking centre-stage in our multimedia offer for Russian-speakers, wherever they are. We produce high-quality videos for the Russian audience on Russian and global stories.
“Our website, bbcrussian.com, is the only Russian-language news website to offer a one-minute news bulletin in a mobile format, also available on a website. We are pleased that this product is now reaching even wider audience through partnerships with highly-regarded online sites.”
Marina Kotova, Director-General, newstube.ru, adds: "Co-operation with one of the world’s best broadcasters is a very important step forward for our project. Our mission is to give users an opportunity to view developments from various viewpoints.
