MOSCOW, December 13 (Itar-Tass) — Director General of the Kommersant publishing house Demyan Kudryavtsev has explained the recent dismissals in the media holding by the fact that during making of the recent issue of the Vlast magazine “the professional journalism standards were violated.”
“During making of the 49th issue of Kommersant Vlast magazine the internal procedures and rules of the Kommersant publishing house, standards of professional journalism and the law of the Russian Federation were violated,” he wrote in his Internet blog, adding: “The management of the publishing house regrets this and offers its apologies to the readers and partners.”
“As a result of this, the board of directors of the publishing houses dismissed the chief editor of Vlast magazine, Maxim Kovalsky. Director General of the publishing house and its board member Demyan Kudryavtsev has tendered his resignation, which will be considered at the next shareholders’ meeting,” according to Kudryavtsev.
Earlier on Tuesday, it was announced that Director General of the Kommersant holding Andrei Galiyev and editor-in-chief of Kommersant Vlast magazine Maxim Kovalsky were dismissed. The Rossiya 24 news television channel reported that “the tough decision was made by the publishing house major shareholder Alisher Usmanov after the latest issue of Vlast was published.”
The Kommersant publishing house was founded on the basis of the private newspaper Kommersant in 1989. In 2006, it was bought by businessman Alisher Usmanov. The publishing house currently includes the Kommersant newspaper with thematic supplements and magazines, including Vlast (Power), Dengi (Money) and Ogonek.
