Russia′s deputy minister of telecommunications and media, Aleksey Volin, in a visit to state-owned news agency LKBN ANTARA here on Monday said "seeing the fast development of mass media in Indonesia the cooperation would certainly benefit the two parties with regard to information gathering."




Aleksey said the cooperation could be realized through information-exchange cooperation in the form of free of charge newspaper supplement exchange.

He said 30 percent of the content of the supplement is expected to come from news information from noted media in Russia while the rest is local content.

The target of readership meanwhile are stakeholders such as politicians, researchers, students and others, he added.

He said the cooperation is aimed at distributing information directly about real conditions in Russia to the Indonesian public and vice versa.

He said the cooperation would also become a form of promotion for the two countries through professional journalistic products rather than through advertorial products.

"In view of that it is hoped cooperation between Russia which would be represented by Russian newspaper ′Rossiyskaya Gazeta′ and LKBN Antara for Indonesia would be immediately realized," he said.

In response to it, LKBN Antara′s director for editorial affairs, Akhmad Kusaeni, said Antara would study the idea well and he hoped the cooperation agreement could be signed in September this year.

"Hopefully the cooperation could be realized following the signing of the memorandum of understanding for it in Moscow in September," he said.
