Written by admin

Deputies of the “Fair Russia – For Truth” faction have submitted a bill to the State Duma, which proposes to create a Public Council of the Russian Federation on Television. The relevant document is published in the Duma’s electronic database.

Secretary of the Union of Journalists of Russia Timur Shafir commented on the legislative initiative of RIA Novosti. SJR understands the demand for such initiatives, but such measures should be treated with some caution, Shafir said.

The request, in his opinion, is due to the fact that the content, the content of major television programs can cause dissatisfaction among most of the public. Some may think that it is oversaturated with entertainment materials or low-quality content, or something like that, Shafir said.

All such initiatives should be treated with some caution, explained the Secretary of the WFD. Measures should not eventually turn into censorship, which is prohibited by the Basic Law of the Russian Federation.

The Union of Journalists of Russia “very closely monitors” such initiatives and “keeps an eye on the pulse,” Shafir said.
