Producer of the Yle Russian Service Heidi Zidan told journalists that these news spots will take place on a daily basis, five minutes a day including the weekends.

First of all, this news is meant for almost 60,000 Russians living in Finland. The news will be provided with subtitles in Finnish, which will make it available for a wide circle of TV viewers.

The first Yle TV news in Russian was dedicated to the rapid growth of the Russian diaspora, which, according to forecasts, in 50 years will reach the size of the large Swedish diaspora.
