MOSCOW, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has pledged to rid the Dozhd (Rain) TV channel from excessive attention of supervisory bodies.
"For my part, I can say that if checks of excessive attention of supervisory bodies were the result of (the channel's) not going on the air - I'll do everything to rid you of such excessive attention," Putin promised to reporters after the televised Q&A session with Russian citizens on Thursday.
As for other people on whom material well-being of the channel depends, it is another issue that should be forwarded to them, he added.
Putin reminded that he had just said during the phone-in session that everybody in Russia should be given the opportunity to voice their point of view, and that only in this case a balanced decision was possible, taking into account the whole range of opinions.
The head of state also underlined that any business, including media business, should operate within the framework of effective legislation.
