The horizontal line of the "Н" extends to the right of the screen, and the Russian text "ИНФОРМАЦИОННЫЙ ВЫПУСК", with a black outline, starts scrolling from right to left in front of the line. Meanwhile, the letters of "овости" wipe in next to the "Н" from left to right. The "ИНФОРМАЦИОННЫЙ ВЫПУСК" text appears scrolling twice in a row, and stops at the center of the ribbon during the third time it appears.
