NEW YORK, March 12. /TASS/. US company Ketchum has ended most of its work for Russia in the United States and Europe, PR Week said on Wednesday.
"Ketchum no longer represents the Russian Federation in the US or Europe with the exception of our office in Moscow," the company said in a statement. "Our partner in the consortium, (Omnicom subsidiary) GPlus, continues to operate under the terms of the contract."
According to PR Week, Ketchum was paid about $23 million by Russia in the period from 2006 to mid-2012, and $17 million by Russian gas giant Gazprom. PR Week claims Ketchum’s decision was rooted in continuing tensions between Russia and the West.
Ketchum and Omnicom were unavailable for comment.
