YEKATERINBURG, September 23 (Itar-Tass) - Itar-Tass Director General Sergei Mikhailov and Sverdlovsk region Governor Yevgeny Kuivashev unveiled on Monday a Urals information centre in Yekaterinburg, the first such structure within the agency's new network of regional operations.
Similar centres will be opened or modernised in Rostov, Novosibirsk, Khabarovsk and other cities in response to the call of the times, Mikhailov said. “The main thing in the new policy of Itar-Tass is to bring regional news to a federal and world level,” he added.
Governor Kuivashev said “We increasingly face the need to protect the region," noting a lack of objectivity and accuracy in media reports. Reflecting on an information war being waged across the globe, the governor said he hoped the new centre would reach new horizons and "increase interest in the unique possibilities and potentials of our region,” he said.
