NOVO-OGAREVO, February 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin spoke against privatization of federal television channels.
“I don’t think that privatisation of federal television channels would be the right thing to do because the state should have its own tools for information policy and an official information channel,” he said at a meeting with the political scientists on Monday, February 6.
“It is necessary to develop free private mass media. For state-owned companies to withdraw from mass media and to stop influencing them (even though they are not exerting any influence there as it is) is not so important. This can be done,” Putin said, thus agreeing with his opponent Mikhail Prokhorov’s suggestion.
