On December 17, 2020, in conjunction with RTRS, RSCC provided high-quality uninterrupted broadcasting to the 11 broadcasting zones of the Russian Federation of a top-priority program with the participation of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The live broadcasting of the President's annual press conference was made available to viewers on the federal TV channels including Russia 1, Russia 24, Channel One, NTV and MIR, and also on the radio stations Mayak, Vesti FM and Radio Rossii.
To ensure the broadcast of this event, the RSCC used its orbital satellite constellation and ground facilities. For the duration of the event, all RSCC on-duty work shifts were enhanced by extra technical personnel to prevent possible emergencies and off-nominal situations from affecting the RSCC communication and broadcasting spacecraft and the RSCC communication networks. In addition, in the broadcast of television and radio programs segment, monitoring and control arrangements were also stepped up.
