MOSCOW, February 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said he did not believe media coverage of Vladimir Putin’s official activities was too excessive.
“We do not share this point of view, it cannot be acceptable,” he told Itar-Tass on Tuesday, commenting on a statement made by a representative of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) after a PACE pre-election mission’s visit to Moscow.
“If there are any complaints there is only one authorized body that may take a decision on this issue – the Central Election Commission and court,” Peskov stressed.
On Monday, after the first mission by PACE observers monitoring the Russian election was over, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe cited Russian opposition leaders as complaining over excessive television coverage of official activities of the Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who is running for Russian president. According to the opposition leaders, it puts them in inferior position. Despite this, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe noted, the majority of the people PACE observers had talked to noted certain improvement in Russia’s information climate, including televised debates between the candidates.
