On 23 June, the news agency "Newspress” in response of MDF’s report on "Practice of allocating budgetary resources among media for the release of information and advertisement” released a statement demanding an apology. Otherwise, the agency expressed the intention to address the court.
We would like to announce that the survey research is based on actual data. If the news agency considers that some basis of legal action exists, this is their right, which is only welcomed by us. We believe, that such kind of legal dispute will be highly beneficial for enhancing media awareness and media literacy. This will also encourage public to understand the essence of Anti-Western propaganda.
