MOSCOW, March 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Prominent journalist Sergei Dorenko, who is Editor- in-Chief of the Russian News Service, has quit the Communist party in a similar queer style as he joined it," First Deputy chairman of the Communist party Ivan Meljnikov told Itar-Tass.
"We did not invite Sergei Dorenko to join us; Dorenko joined KPRF on a local level some time ago. We did not interfere into the matter then. Dorenko is a bright person, and therefore we merely took the information into account," Meljnikov said.
Sergei Dorenko explained in the Facebook that he made up his mind to quit the party last fall, but he did not announce his plan during the election campaign.
"If the prominent journalist had quit the party during the election campaign we would have taken his departure easy," Meljnikov said. "We never asked him to do anything for us and never counted on him. For the past three months Dorenko had been campaigning for Vladimir Putin on his radio; Dorenko belonged to a pool of the so-called "politologists" and experts of power with each of them supporting a propagandist course of Vladimir Putin's headquarters," Meljnikov said.
