Welcome to #RT International!

To erase a shadow of doubt: This is our official account on Steemit
Confirmation can be found here: https://twitter.com/RT_com/status/1113508897732448256

Who we are:
RT is a global, round-the-clock news network of eight TV channels, broadcasting news, current affairs, and documentaries, with digital platforms in six languages and RUPTLY video news agency. Round-the-clock news channels in English, Arabic, Spanish, and documentary channel RT Doc, in English and Russian, broadcast from Moscow, while RT America airs from Washington, RT UK from London, and RT France from Paris. Today, RT is available in more than 100 countries spanning five continents.


RT creates news with an edge for viewers who want to Question More. RT covers stories overlooked by the mainstream media, provides alternative perspectives on current affairs, and acquaints international audiences with a Russian viewpoint on major global events.
RT is the winner of the Monte Carlo TV Festival Awards for best 24-hour newscast, and the only Russian TV channel to be a six-time Emmy finalist. In 2018, RT was nominated for the International Emmy Award in the 'News' category for a series of special reports about the humanitarian crisis in the Iraqi city of Mosul following efforts by Iraqi government forces and their Western allies to recapture the city from ISIS. The channel first made it into the International Emmy finals in 2010 for its coverage of US President Barack Obama's first visit to Moscow; in 2012, for coverage of Occupy Wall Street protests in the US in 2011; in 2014, for a series of reports on a Guantánamo Bay inmates' hunger strike; and in 2016, for its reporting on the 70th session of the UN General Assembly. Chris Hedges, host of 'On Contact with Chris Hedges', scored for RT America its first Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host. RT holds dozens of medals from the New York Festivals for its documentary and news programming, and has been repeatedly recognized by numerous international awards competitions and media organizations, including the Cannes Lions, the Webby Awards, the Lovies, the Shorty Awards, the Association for International Broadcasting, and the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union, among many others.

According to a 2017 survey on TV news consumption by Ipsos, a leading audience research firm, RT has a total weekly audience of 100 million viewers in 47 of the 100+ countries where RT broadcasts are available. RT enjoys its largest regional audience in Europe, with 43 million weekly viewers in 15 European countries. In the US, RT has a weekly audience of 11 million. Across the Middle East and North Africa, where news consumers were polled in 15 countries, RT has a weekly TV audience of 11 million. In Latin America, RT's weekly viewership is 18 million.
In South America, RT is part of the national TV network of Argentina and Venezuela. It was picked up by a state-operated satellite system in Bolívia and the FESCOM Association in Colómbia, which includes 200 cable operators. RT's programming also airs on Cuba's national TV channel.

RT is the #1 TV news network on YouTube with more than eight billion views across its channels and over 12 million subscribers. In October 2018, RT Arabic became the first broadcaster of non-Arabic origin in the region to generate over one billion views on YouTube, leaving behind the Arabic versions of CNN, BBC, and DW, among others. RT Spanish has more than 1 billion views on YouTube — more than all other Spanish-language versions of international TV news outlets.

But if it is Original pages RT .... This is very cool . So soon I'm back and I look what more come up here.

You may want to include something like that in your actual post! This is what people look for, when deciding to follow or ignore an account claiming to be somebody significant. We're an evidence-based community!

When I was see this user here was say hi for RT ... @exyle ... then I know it is real pages :)

Wonderful news! I'm curious, why did you choose steemit over other blockchain based platforms (there are a few, but will go nameless here)?

Your question is the best. I would love to know too

@rt-international please, would be nice to answer this question.

Welcome to Steem!

Welcome to Steem!

When i was see you say here Hi ... now I see this pages is real :))
So lets see what go happen in long run :)

Welcome to Steemit! This is a great place for news outlets to share information and interact with potential viewers.

Awesome, welcome to the Steem blockchain social media platform!

Welcome to the Blockchain!

I am 46 and during the 80's if you told me that Russia has more freedom of the press, and is a shining example of truth in Journalism compared to the U.S. I would be ready to fight! RT News is my go to source for News around the world! I am extremely happy to see RT on Steemit! I also have a huge crush on Sophie Shevardnadze! She is absolutely to die for 😍

:) You just made me curious about Sophie Shevardnadze! Thank you!

Posted using Partiko Android

She is as intelligent,sharp and well spoken as she is beautiful. She hosts a great show, and she is without a doubt the perfect woman😍

I 'echo' your sentiment here @natepower . RT in 'my' opinion, is a more respectful news source than any of their counter parts here in the U.S. at this time.

So cool to run across you on RT, hopefully more people start boycotting Facebook and make their way to censorship free Steemit!

I haven't signed into FB for about two years, and two years before then...
Hopefully, Steemit decides to 'better support' the 'users experience' here, or they will continue to be less attractive to new people.

Nice to hear from you Nate.

I dont think we should trust any news source, they all have their agendas. It's good to get different views. I like seeing live news, then how they report it later, that shows how they all put their own spin on it.

Welcome @rt-international, happy to see you on STEEM too!

You are proof that STEEM is becoming more and more mainstream, and that's really cool!
Or, changing my point of view, that you actually are a truly avant-garde and alternative media channel?

A huge hug from @amico!

(resteemed and followed, obviously!)

Welcome to our plaform and thank you for the introduction !
Has it been confirmed that the real RT MediaPowerhouse is behind this?
Thanks in advance if anyone has the answer.

Thank you ! This is huge !

You are being cheated. Let them post an article on the official website.

Welcome to Steem RT! Very cool to have you here! This is true freedom!

Welcome to the platform and welcome to the future ;) I am glad that you recognized the potential and all the opportunities that blockchain technology has to offer.

Welcome to Steemit RT News!

"To erase a shadow of doubt: This is our official account on Steemit"

Just pointing out that this is exactly what an imposter would say. You might want to do a little better to be taken seriously here.

EDIT: I've found evidence pointing that this is real, in the comment section. It would be best to have that in your actual post, in my opinion!

they took your advice..... all legit now!
good to have RT on Steem

Welcome to STEEM! Expect frequent upvotes and reblogs from this account!

Very interesting, good news for the blokchain. I just hope no one will forget what kind od media RT is.

I do not forget. It amazes me to read the comments, thanks for yours. The same is good news

So glad! Following you is one of the few reasons I still use FB... now I can get rid of that sad platform.

Welcome to the blockchain RT! Another reason for not having to use YouTube! 😎

And I will be able to finally incentivise Combat Approved :D

Good to see you guys here!

It's nice to have you here! Welcome!

I'm tremendously stoked to see you here on this blockchain platform!

WooHoo! I love it. You might be somewhat alternative, but you are also mainstream. Get your followers in here with you. The more the better. You are exactly the content creator we need. Welcome and thank you so much for taking the leap. Start posting with the esteem app and they will upvote your posts and give lots of support. This place is not easy, but you can definitely make success happen.

I do not agree at all. They are not mainstream, they have their followers here already obviously, they will (most probably) not bring in fiat money and least of all they are not doing the blockchain a favour.

Good “news” for our platform!
You are more than welcome.

Wow, assuming you really are the official account for rt, you are an impressive group.


Welcome to steemit and enjoy your stay with much fun, cheers😊

True story

RT changed my life

Do you support white supremacy from RT propaganda? Russian trolls talk that fked niggers raped white people. Hate is evrywhere around Russian media shit.

Did you watch my video ?

Obviously not, LOL ^_^

However the truth is (almost) always something subjective: it depends on the point of view, right?

A huge hug
from @amico!


" Russian trolls..."

I was curious if you've met kettle yet? You certainly seem like pot. Are you only triggered by RT, generally, or specific Russian topics? It would be nice to have some background for your trolling, to better understand your points.

BTW, I'm not disagreeing with your views. Neither am I agreeing with them. I'm seeking expository background so I can better understand them, and be able to make an informed judgment.

"the fake news from BBC and sky" aha ... why don't you add that words to each of your seven77 tweets? I bet the initiative would die soon ... I'm sad to have found you sympa for a certain time but that applies to a lot of commenters on this post also.

You and me will be dead soon too

I’m trying to do something meaningful with our Blockchain STEEM

I’m not perfect and my intentions are one with universe

Thanks 🙏

You and me will be dead soon too

In 40 years time which is far away I'd say.

I lost my dad when he was only 48 and ever since I kind of live my life as it’s my last day

"The past is history. The future's a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why they call it the present."--Eleanore Roosevelt.

We can only live one day at a time. It is wisdom to endeavor to do so on purpose.

I'm an American but after this announcement, I am going to get a subscription to RT on cable TV @rt-international.

  1. I hope you will cover cryptocurrency related news on RT like Bitcoin and even Steem + Steemit Inc.

  2. I highly recommend that RT invests in Steem and convert it to Steem Power. A position of 1 Million + SP would be a force to reckon with and would supply constant marketing on the Steem blockchain without having to spend any of your investment! 😊👍

So you invite them to shape the Trending page their way? Can't believe that the lovers of free speech want to see it die that soon.

I am in favor of freedom of speech and freedom in general but American society is definitely not in favor of free speech. If anything.. it is paid speech in the United States with massive amounts of censorship (the censorship in the U.S. is increasing every year).

If someone wants to censor @rt-international's activities and in general.. speech.. they can create a separate front-end.

Might as well call it MakeAmericaGreatAgain.com and you can even create a Steem-based token on @aggroed's Steem-Engine and name it "USD".

That's "free speech". @isarnoewe

Um, so you consider trending - where posts most amply supplied with paid upvotes exclusively dominate - to be an example of free speech? I am a bit nonplussed by that. Could you please elucidate just a little and provide some reasonable justification for considering the most heavily promoted group of posts on Steem as somehow representative of free speech?

It would be nice for my cognitive dissonance to dissipate, if only a little, regarding your comment.


sorry I doubt they will, I have not seen that communists like to invest

I think they would invest in Steem before CNN or Fox News would.

Do you notice that it was @rt-international that joined @steemit first.. not CNN, Bloomberg or Fox News?

Russia seems to be more savvy than the U. S. Government with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general and I also think they are the ones that bought $100 Million USD in Bitcoin in a single buy last week - if it was them, they might follow it up next month and there after every month with another $100 million USD in Bitcoin purchases.

Having said that, I wish you all the best and hope you find what you are looking for.

Oligarchists do.

Calling Russia Communist today is similar to calling France 'Surrender Monkeys' when the Yellow Vest protests are perhaps the strongest resistance to the globalists today. There is a Communist Party in Russia. It isn't in power. Putin is not a member.

"Currently represented in the State Duma
United Russia (340)
Communist Party (42)
Liberal Democratic Party (40)
A Just Russia (23)
Rodina (1)
Civic Platform (1)"


The Soviet Union ended thirty years ago. Perhaps you might catch up with current events, profitably.

Socialists do you think well? There is not much difference either. They support the communist dictatorships of Cuba and Venezuela. There it is not inverted, it is stolen. In fact for me where there is state there is socialism that steals. That's why I love the blockchain, I love decentralization

You and I agree strongly regarding decentralization. We also agree that government is based on theft, as far as I can grasp from your comment. As to geopolitics, I'm not sure that the support you point out is ideological rather than realpolitik in nature. Russia has enemies, and those enemies also support particular governments I am sure we also will agree aren't shining examples of virtue.

That means Russia needs friends, and there's a very real truth to the old adage 'The enemy of my enemy is my friend.' Not sure such necessities imply that Russia is Communist and won't invest money in Steem - or anything else.

China is actually Communist and they do plenty of investing. BTW, if you're calling me a Socialist, you could not be further from the truth. Phyllis Schlafly of the Eagle Forum once spoke with me on political matters and called me an ultraconservative. She was wrong too, because I'm an anarchist and reckon that people actually are sovereign.

Most of them just abdicate the actual power to the first thugs that come along and demand obedience. I won't.

I agree that you are right, I do not support any government or its media. I live in the first person the dictatorship and that is why I am alarmed when RT says it is beautiful; the same thing that alarms another who lives in a dictatorship supported by CNN. And please, I did not call you a socialist. I probably do not say some things well, I do not speak English and I use Google translator.

I would love RT to invest in Steem, I hope I'm wrong and also that it brings many people, but he has not presented his account on social networks, but with his soundclow account he did. Maybe they're waiting, I do not know, only time will tell and I'll be happy if I'm wrong.

ist ja Hammer Daumen hoch

Welcome to the Steem Blockchain, great to have you here!

I still can't believe you guys are here. That means a lot for this community.

I am damn glad to see you here, at last. Rampant censorship is creating existential threats to free people, and while you won't read that I consider you the cure, you are part of the cure: diversity, decentralization, and independent sources of information. Clearly, you have an agenda, but since that agenda is different to other media I have access to, I am availed of information that enables me to expand my understanding and grasp of issues you treat, or even only peripherally impact.

In this day and age of state-sponsored terrorism, that may well be life-saving. Too few people grasp that not having good information can not only kill you, it can kill your whole family, community, and entire nations. While I will not expect you to have no agenda, I will expect quality sourcing of your posts. I hope also very much to see at least some engagement from you with we plebs on Steem.

Indeed, little you do could more imbue your articles with value than discussing sourcing, meaning of events, or how your agenda colors your reporting. I look forward to the great content I expect to be provided, now that I can finally follow you on Steem.


Welcome to #steem @rt-international.
This is a home where business meets financial and social freedom.
Post resteemed!

Please share your youtube link.
Meanwhile, I shared this introduction on Twitter:

"financial freedom" is a term that clashes with the socialist philosophy of RT :(

Great news to see a profile of the mass media in the Steem blockchain, welcome and best wishes for you. Cheers.

Here come the Russian bots.

fuck russian propaganda! Who is next? Islamic state? Al-Qaeda? Steemit open for all. Welcome!

I personally would welcome both of those institutions to Steem. It is when dialogue fails that violence begins.

"You can only make peace with your enemies."--Littlefinger

I'd also welcome other groups and institutions I vehemently disagree with, such as the Atlantic Council, CNN, the KKK, Black Panthers, LGTBBQ, and etc., because dialogue is where the ideas people believe can be supported, and minds can be changed. It is censorship, ignorance, and hate that causes the divisions in society that profiteers use as weapons to parasitize our wealth and power to aggrandize themselves, and keep us in their thrall.

If your ideas are sound and you can clearly support them, I will agree with you, even if you're a troll. IDC if you're a troll. I care if you're right. I won't find that out by blocking you and calling you names. Neither will I enable you to learn that some things you have thought to be true aren't, because my beliefs are sound and superable, and insofar as they oppose yours, are the only way you can become right where you're not.

It is those that would pit us against each other, like dogs in a fighting ring where they bet on the winner, for their own benefit and at our expense, that seek to keep us from discussing our views. It is not because of our disagreements that they do so, but because our discussions will allow us to reach agreement - and that is the enemy of tyranny.

This channel spreads lies and manipulates news.

Could you name one that doesn't?

Just curious.

No I can not. But you should not trust Russia

I agree. Trust no one.

Welcome to Steemit and thanks for following the advise and certifying your account, in the Era of all fakes coming from the US and its cronies.

Great... Welcome RT hope you brought out steem into mainstream media.

Cool! Have Max and Stacy finally convinced you to join in here... :)

Well, now lets see some small mentions of Steemit in RT programs, please. And in a while make Steem the official crypto currency in Russia, with government backing. BTC sucks anyway - but dont tell Max I said that. :)

I doubt they do, I do not think they care about promoting Steem, this is just another space to conquer before other media

It is interesting that the only weapons they can use to conquer here are A) money, and B) words. If RT is going to conquer Steem, you are making the claim - since you already stated they would not invest in Steem - that the words they provide will convince us all to follow them.

That is a strong endorsement. Are you sure that is how you feel about RT?

I did not say it, I just put it in doubt as well as everything I expect RT to do here in Steem. When I started I was taught that I had to do community, interact with others, that's something they should learn, Steem is not Twitter. I would like to see this blockchain make the media participate more with their audience and not be elites

Well, I sure do hope @rt-international engages with folks here rather than seem aloof.

However, your claim regarding your statement is not factual. This is what you actually wrote:

"...this is just another space to conquer before other media..."

That's not an expression of doubt. It's a definite claim that they will act a certain way, and further seems more like prophecy than prediction.

All I can say is that if you don't check yourself, someone else will. I bet you'll prefer to do the checking.

I do not understand what you mean by that "All I can say is that if you don't check yourself, someone else will" and also why my comment bothers you so much, it is my opinion that I express from freedom.

Awesome, welcome to steem! RT many times feel like the best news channel who dares to tell the truth and almost the whole truth and does it really professionally!

Welcome and thanks for the introduction!

Glad you guys went ahead with an intro post to confirm, thanks for that! Welcome to Steem.

Welcome to Steem, Great news 🙌🏼🔥

Welcome to Steemit! This is a huge development for our community, RT will bring in millions of new users from all around the world.

Wow, it's very real and awesome, ¡you are here to informate us!
¿Who else say that RT is the best news channel?

@rt-international Welcome one off bast mainstream news on steem just remember one thing steemit not steem,

bast of lack and hope continue your truth full journey.

( as a writer I recommend you @steempeak because you can touch with your audience and activity by notifications )

yes, but it's nice to have something to balance out some of the western propaganda with..

“In life two negatives don't make a positive. Double negatives turn positive only in math and formal logic. In life things just get worse and worse and worse.”

Robert McKee Quotes

Despite your feelings about double negatives, when everybody is lying it is impossible to know the truth unless liars opposed to one another reveal the truth in the middle. You can only find that out by listening to both sides.

Which is clearly majoring the trending pages, jaja.

You're the only ones I consider as real, covering what's going on without giving the items a propaganda twist, the rest is manipulating the news. Thanks for keeping it real. 😘
