Russia's Federation Council Head Wants Children's Media

The head of Russia's Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, has suggested creating media for children in Russia.

“Today's generation of children should also have its own media, its own space on the Internet and its own content on television,” said the speaker of the Russian parliament's upper chamber.

In her view, children's media outlets should help increase the effectiveness of children's organizations. She cited Soviet-era children's magazines such as “Pioner” as successful examples.

Matvienko also said that “all organs of state power should think about further mechanisms to involve schoolchildren in the social-political life of the country.”

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
