We are pleased to announce that RBTH, a leading source of information about contemporary Russia will now be available in Indonesia.

At the beginning of Vladimir Putin's latest presidential term, Russia began to shift its foreign policy noticeably to the east, and a special emphasis was made on economically integrating Russia into the Asia-Pacific region. Putin even celebratedhis 61st birthday in Bali - the Indonesian region that hosted the APEC summit in October, following last year’s summit in the Far East city of Vladivostok.

The dynamic growth in trade between Russia and Indonesia is reflected in large infrastructure projects currently underway, such as the construction of a 112-mile-long railway on Kalimantan Island by a Russian company.

Russia has also supplied Indonesia airlines with its commercial airliner the Sukhoi Superjet 100 and Russia has been building GLONASS stations in Indonesia. There are also increasingly strong ties in culture, education, and tourism.

This increased cooperation is part of the reason for RBTH’s expansion into the country. In the past, Indonesians received most of their information about Russia from Western media, but given the growing level of engagement between the countries, Indonesians need a more direct connection to Russia.

RBTH Indonesia is a unique chance for Indonesians to keep up with current news from Russia, to understand the economic situation and political developments in the country, and to learn more about Russian's rich culture and traditions.

Our writers will provide readers with objective, and, most importantly, quality, journalism. We will feature writing by Russian experts who will analyze the most pressing international issues from a Russian perspective.

And our multimedia section will introduce readers to the real Russia through colorful photos and exciting videos .

Russia Beyond the Headlines is published in 21 countries, in 16 languages. Like our other projects, RBTH Indonesia has been created specifically for the Indonesian audience and our editorial team will work hard to interest and inform the Indonesian reader.
