RT launches UK channel and looks at German and French versions

RT,  the state-run TV broadcast channel formerly known as Russia Today,  has launched a London-based news channel. A spokesman said that  RT UK would be focusing on”the issues that matter most to Britons.” The move  follows RT’s expansion into Argentina earlier this month and the channel has  also announced plans to create French- and German-language channels to add to its existing English, Spanish and Arabic ones.
