MOSCOW, February 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The reshuffle of the Echo of Moscow's Board of Directors is a political decision, Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov said.
“Echo of Moscow has long been an eyesore to the ruling party, so I would not be surprised if they dismiss the Board of Directors and appoint a new one,” he said, adding that the Board allocated funds.
It was announced on Tuesday that Gazprom Media demanded the resignation of the Echo of Moscow's Board of Directors. The radio and the media holding coordinated a list of candidates, which would be put to a vote at a general meeting on March 29, 2012. The list preserves independent directors and suggests that Svyazinvest General Director Vadim Semyonov and former Lenizdat General Director Yevgeny Trubin should replace Alexander Makovsky and Yevgeny Yasin.
Echo of Moscow editor in chief Alexei Venediktov said that the radio policy would remain unchanged and his resignation was not proposed.
