Lukin promised to help Novoye Vremya resume publishing: its publication
was paralised due to the ownership conflict. "I aim to do all I can
to ensure that this magazine which is the face of Moscow is published again.
And I won't halt in my attempts to achieve this goal, said Vladimir Lukin
at a press conference at RIA Novosti.
A Moscow joint-stock company claims that it obtained rights to the premises
in Maliy Putinkovsky pereulok where the office of the magazine had been
situated. At the beginning of March the premises of the Novoye Vremya
were seized by this company and the staff of the magazine were refused
access to their working places. "This is a complicated and intricate
property onflict. I have raised the issue with the arbitration court and
the Public Prosecutor General Office," said Lukin.
