MOSCOW, December 22 (Itar-Tass) — President Medvedev has suggested creating public television on one of the federal television channels. "To improve public communications modern technologies should be used," Medvedev declared.
"I suggest that the problem of creating public television, possibly on the basis of the existing federal television channels, should be resolved in the near future," the president said.
"Neither the state nor any owner of new public television shall exercise any influence on the adoption of any decision," Medvedev said. "In that case none of the owners of public television should have a decisive influence when making decisions," Medvedev explained. "Neither the state nor any private owner," he reiterated.
"I am confident that such public television will make our media environment more competitive and more interesting," the president declared.
