    RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan has unveiled a plan to launch a fully functioning TV channel in German next year, which would become the fourth broadcasting language after English, Arabic and Spanish.

    "We are developing in Germany. I really hope… that we will start a fully functioning TV channel in German the following year or a bit later," Margarita Simonyan told the Russian TV Tsentr channel in an interview.

    RT has a website in German, which is popular with German-speaking social media, Simonyan added.

    "All the people who are not allowed to speak out in mainstream media, you are welcome. You definitely have a platform. Of course, if these people act within the law and do not express any extremist opinions, judgments or appeals," Simonyan noted.
