The new channel takes the name of Zvezda (Star, symbol of the Armed Forces) and has begun to emit classic Russians, as much warlike films as of adventures
One has been being a project of the Ministry of Russian Defesa that starts up agreeing with the Day of Defense of the Mother country, known until for years like the day of the Red Army. For that reason the Ministry of Defense did not find better date to begin the emissions of a television channel whose project took waiting for about five years.
The director of Zvezda is colonel Alexander Lebedev, who directs the Study of Central Broadcast television of the ministry. The same Russian president, Vladimir Putin, were the one that ordered the project of the televising channel that initially counts with 80 million dollars for financing.
