    The agency turned five on December 9. It was created in late 2013 after the merger of state broadcaster Voice of Russia and RIA Novosti, the successor of Sovinformburo, the leading Soviet news agency.

    Rossiya Segodnya combines radio broadcasts and newswires, news websites, multimedia international press centers. It also produces and distributes photo and video content and infographics, information products in social media, and content for mobile apps. The media group has firmly taken a leading position both in Russia and abroad, progressively expanding the geography of influence around the world, developing a system of information hubs and offering the audience information content in more than 30 languages.
