Global Content. Trusted Journalism.

Access video and audio content for television, radio, and digital affiliates.


Current Time (Настоящее Время) is a 24/7 TV & digital network targeting Russian speakers living around the globe. Current Time offers an objective and fresh alternative to Kremlin-controlled media – providing live news, spin-free analysis, and engaging feature programming with an accent on people, not politics.

Flexible and convenient, Direct makes our journalism available to affiliates in Russian and English at no cost.

Programs and Documentaries

With 100 new titles a year, Current Time offers the largest compendium of Russian-language documentaries – many of them never shown on the mainstream Russian market. We round out our programming with shows on business start-ups, education, media literacy, cooking and travel, and a rare look at the unexplored people and places of the Russian-speaking world.
