The Yabloko faction is going to send an appeal to Russian President
Vladimir Putin today, asking him to settle the situation around
NTV with the help of the Supreme Court. Yabloko leader Grigory
Yavlinsky announced this decision at a press conference today.
He noted the Supreme Court should decide whether the meeting of
NTV shareholders was legal or not. As we have already reported,
the special meeting of shareholders introduced changes in the
leadership of NTV. "The state wants to nationalize NTV with the
help of Gazprom, and it is important to separate this problem
from debt issues," Yavlinsky stressed. He mentioned it is very
important to be respectful to NTV journalists and expressed hope
that the conciliatory commission will make a wise decision.
