To the Editors:
First of all I would like to compliment you on publishing a brilliant magazine. My only regret is that it does not come to my home once a week instead of every two months.
I would like to comment on the Freedom Of The Press article in the most recent edition of Russian Life [Jan/Feb 2007]. I was surprised to see that you did not include the Television Station RTVI in your list of sources of current information on Russia. RTVI is the sister station of Echo Moskvy and uses the slogan that they are the only source of Russian News on TV (Internet or otherwise) that does not have to pass Kremlin censorship. Many of the same journalists work for both Echo Moskvy and RTVI. I see that you did mention Gusinsky’s News.ru as being a valued web site, but the RTVI feed actually can be picked up from that site. RTVI has guests from Alexander Prokhanov to Yevgeny Kiselyov, exchanging views in an open and free manner.
