Kremlin spokesman says Russian media free to define their editorial policy on Trump

Peskov stressed that the Russian media have always been free to define their editorial policies

MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not dictate the Russian media what approach they should adopt towards covering US President Donald Trump, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"This is complete nonsense. The matter is, our media are free to define their editorial policies. So these allegations are just another fake news," he added.

According to Peskov, all the sources of information, including the web, TV channels (both state and private), cable networks and radio stations are available in Russia. "There is a wide range and selection of media outlets," he noted.

When asked if the Russian media had begun to pay less attention to the US president recently, the Kremlin spokesman said that the country’s authorities "do not monitor how much coverage a particular topic gets."
