Where does RT stand?

Russia Today is a Russian news channel in English. First I was thinking that such a channel must be sponsored by the Russian government to promote the Russian image abroad. But then I found out it is owned by independent TV Novosti.

One of the the commentators Peter Lavelle has its own weekly political programme "IMHO". In addition he has his own blog. From his blog entries I understand that he tries to have a unbiased opionion. He is neither over-critical nor endorsing of Russia. However, that can appear a bit naive at times.
