MOSCOW, March 11 (Itar-Tass) – The Russian president’s Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights called for drafting a concept for gradual deregulation of television.
The recommendations adopted following the Council’s special sitting on February 18 were posted on its official website on Monday, March 11.
The document says it will take “no less than 5–7 years to implement this task and start with deregulation of the ‘Big Three’.”
The Council also believes it necessary to “legislatively limit concentration of electronic mass media in the hands of the government and municipal authorities.”
The Council also suggested “working out and adopting legislation that will introduce a mechanism for redistribution of advertising incomes received as a bonus from government assets between different television channels as well as different programmes (departments) in order to support pluralism on television” and “working out and adopting legislation introducing mechanisms for government and public financial support for sociopolitical talk shows on federal television channels.”
