Subscription to print media will grow by a quarter
The cost of subscriptions to print publications in Russia will increase by no more than 25%, said Nikolai Nikiforov, Minister of Communications and Mass Media. According to the minister, the ministry will not allow multiple subscription increases in the Far East and the Far North.
The minister noted that despite the abolition of government subsidies, the increase in subscription costs for citizens will not be massive and will not lead to the collapse of the paper media industry. According to Nikolai Nikiforov, over the past six years the state has allocated subsidies to print media for subscriptions in the amount of 18 billion rubles and another 7 billion - to the Russian Post, so that it keeps tariffs at a fixed level.
"This assistance has given the industry a long respite, but it can not be infinite," the minister explained. The Ministry takes into account the concerns of print media executives, but tries to meet the interests of all parties.
