Russian TV channel relaunches from abroad after being forced off the air

As Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine, truthful reporting of the conflict was gagged due to the country’s new so-called “fake news” law. Russia’s last independent TV channel, TV Rain, was forced off the air as a result of the new rule. Shortly before that the husband-and-wife team behind the network also left their home. But they couldn’t sit still — they continued working from abroad and eventually relaunched TV Rain.
