RT was founded with an aim to see the world with a Russian Perspective. However the channel is often accused of partiality and greatly exaggerating and misinforming the global audiences on the Russian perspective and Western Narrative. Widely seen as an opposition to particularly America, and generally the West, (European Alliance) the channel has consistently maintained its strong stance against the strategic, economic, ideological and political rivals. The Russian viewpoints and the interests of its allies are always strictly followed, advocated and monitored by the administration of the channel. Acquainting International audience with the concerns and significance of the policies of Kremlin and their impact on the global peace is taken with great concern.
