MOSCOW, November 9 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev promised to stay on the web after the end of his term of office.
He believes that “the authorities should look for allies” among Internet users.
“The authorities should look for allies on the web in order to be up to date. Otherwise, there will be a gap between them and a considerable part of people,” the head of state said at a meeting with his Internet supporters on Wednesday, November 9.
Medvedev said he tries to use his attitude toward the Internet as an example for other Russian leaders but admitted that he did not know whether they were following his suit.
“At any rate, I have decided that this topic [the Internet] will be relevant for me not only now but also in the future, and I will stay on the web,” the president said.
He believes that “the Internet helps any person be up to date, get information that has not been edited or turned into digests or summaries according to certain people’s tastes”.
