Since perestroika times, quite a number of Orthodox studios appeared in Russia and other Orthodox countries. Among them there are enough quality programming but it is absolutely unknown to the West. With this purpose Blagovest Media International launched a web-platform www.blagovestmedia.tv in Russian to present and promote such kind of TV production.
Now Blagovest Media International web-platform www.blagovestmedia.tv hosts over 300 Christian films and programs available for Western broadcasters.
