Solzhenitsyn wakes up for NTV comment

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, a renowned Russian writer, presented yesterday his name’s prize with 2 other Russian writers. Taking the opportunity to speak in public, Alexander Isayevich touched upon the developments around the NTV nationwide television network which is believed to have recently been taken over by the state-controlled Gazprom giant. “What has happened with the NTV is regrettable, both a chain of the events, and that we fail to see the NTV team as it used to be,” Mr. Solzhenitsyn is quoted as saying. He went on to say that “the Russian television is largely callous and sometimes even derisive to the real plight of the people,” and independent media is only useful insofar as it has “internal and domestic governance, without sourcing dollars from abroad.”
