The Voice of Russia, named earlier "Radio Moscow", started broadcasting in India in 1942. The first programme was just fifteen minutes long – only reports from the battlefields of the Great Patriotic War. The great Indian writer Rabindranath Tagore was among the listeners of these programmes.
Since 2010 the news blocks of the Voice of Russia have been aired every hour by the popular Indian radio station Fever 104 FM.
In the recent years, The Voice of Russia has been actively developing new technologies in order to expand its audience. The programmes of the Voice of Russia are available today on short, medium and FM waves, as well as via satellite channels, Internet, and even on cell phones through Advanced Digital Restriction Management technology.
Radio programmes of The Voice of Russia in Hindi, Urdu and Bengali, remain an important source of relevant and objective information about Russia for Indian listeners.
