RT Deutsch is a television channel based in Berlin. It is part of the RT network, a Russian state-controlled international television network, funded by the Russian government. The website was launched in late 2014.
In 2013, RT started a subsidiary called Ruptly, a TV news agency which is based in Berlin. It has 25 offices around the world (including in Washington, Damascus, London, Madrid, Gaza and Cairo).
On 6 November 2014, RT launched a German-language network. The first German-language broadcast of RT Deutsch was a political magazine Der fehlende Part (The missing part), presented by Jasmin Kosubek. Starting with five shows a week this number was reduced to three in September 2015 and to one show in February 2016.
In Handelsblatt, Andreas Macho concluded after an investigation of the program of the German branch of RT in November 2014: The bottom line [is that] RT Germany spreads more untruths, reductions and distortions than this - promise as the moderators constantly -. would enlighten. Die Tageszeitung summed up the selection of the interlocutors of the first weeks of RT Deutsch with either flaming anti-American and European opponents of the left and right margins together. In February 2016 a former employee called RT Deutsch skilful propaganda and claimed that they are concentrating on an audience of conspiracy theorists and persons on the far right of the political spectrum. In February 2021, through obtained emails, a Der Spiegel investigation provided insights on how the station planned a platform for fringe groups to undermine democracy in Germany.
