Russia 1 (Russian: Россия-1, Rossiya-1) is a state-owned Russian television channel founded in 1991. It belongs to the All-Russia State Television and Radio Company (VGTRK).[1]. Russia Channel was previously known as RTR (Russian: РТР) or Channel 2 (Russian: Второй канал).

Russia 1 has the second largest audience in Russian television. In a typical week, it is viewed by 75% of urban Russians, compared to 83% for the leading channel, Channel One. The two channels are similar in their politics, and they compete directly in entertainment.[1]

Russia 1 is the successor to the Soviet Second Channel. As of 2008, it is headed by Oleg Dobrodeev, who was a founder of the original NTV.[1]

Russia 1 has many regional variations, that's why it broadcasts in many languages.
