Located in northern part of Russia, the only Sami language radio in the country is ready to be launched again, after almost three years break.
The station will start broadcasting later this summer. After three years break, the Kola Sami Radio has no longer any debts and it is ready to start broadcasting again. This time, based on self – financing, the Kola Sami Radio aims to become a studio recording for musicians and a news service for Sami people in Russian north.
Even though no exact date is yet announced, it is certain that rather sooner than later, the sound of Sami language will be heard in northern part of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia.
