ⓘ Public Television of Russia

On 17 April 2012, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed decree №455 on establishing of the station. According to Medvedevs decree, the interests of the public will be represented by the Public Television Council PTC, which will be appointed on the basis of nominations submitted by an all-purpose oversight body called the Public Chamber of Russia. No members of the Channel management will be allowed to be members of parliament or government officials.

In June 2012 the Russian parliament passed a bill setting up a legislative basis for public television. In July the next President Vladimir Putin approved members of the Public Television Supervisory Board and appointed President of the International TV Academy Anatoly Lysenko as director-general.

In September 2012 Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a resolution establishing Public Television of Russia as an independent non-commercial organization. The charter was also approved and added to the resolution.

Anatoly Lysenko, the director-general of the channel, said shortly before the official opening that "the channel would be educational and was supposed to become a new forum for discussing urgent problems that are a source of concern for Russian society. The channel should also be an instrument of direct and open communication between the people and the authorities".
