As one of the top five most-cited television channels in Russia, TVRain (ТВ ДОЖДЬ) conducts investigations, airs interesting reports, hosts interviews, and gives a platform for real, lively debates unlike anything else seen on Russian TV channels. TVRain has managed to avoid censorship, providing a forum for those opposition leaders denied access to pro-government mass media, as well as offering independent views on current events in Russia and the world and covering sensitive political topics like Crimea, Donbass in East Ukraine, Islamic State and more. Besides the news, TVRain also covers music and movies, travel, social projects, lectures and round table discussions.
NOTE: Please be advised that new programming has been suspended as of March 3, 2022, but access remains available to the archived programming.
