"I think this is a wonderful result for our channel. In just five years we have made a huge leap and are now successfully competing with the leading Arabic television channels, and in some metrics are actually surpassing them,” said RT editor in chief Margarita Simonyan. “I congratulate all of the employees of RT’s Arabic channel with this victory.”

Launched in 2007, Rusiya Al-Yaum broadcasts around the clock from RT’s Moscow studio and reaches more than 350 million viewers across the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. Starting on December 26, 2012, its programming is available in High Definition.
