MOSCOW, June 24 (Itar-Tass) —— A bill regarding the prospective establishment of Russia’s public television was passed by the State Duma on Friday.
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told the government on May 24 the Law on the Formation and Use of Specific Capital of Non-Profit Organizations must be amended to prepare a normative base for the public television.
The ordinance establishing the Russian Public Television on January 1, 2013, was signed on April 17. Then President Medvedev said the Public Television would require crediting. “The government should help: the loan should be transformed into an endowment,” he said. “The Public Television will be governed by a council formed through the Public Chamber mechanism with the representation of various political forces. The ordinance bans the participation of civil servants in the Public Television Council.” Medvedev also said that the Public Television might broadcast its programs on the Zvezda channel.
Medvedev declared the need for establishing the Russian Public Television in his state of the nation address presented at the Federal Assembly in December 2011. The Communications and Mass Media Ministry and the Presidential Human Rights Council drafted proposals concerning the Public Television.
