In Nagorno-Karabakh, first issue of newspaper "Revival" published
In Nagorno-Karabakh, the "National Revival" Party has released the first issue of newspaper "Revival". Local residents believe that to be successful, the new edition is to highlight the acute problems of the society ignored the media controlled by the authorities.
The newspaper "Revival" will be published in A3 format as an eight-page edition of one thousand copies. It is planned that the newspaper will be issued once a month free of charge. This was told to the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent by Aik Khanumyan, Chairman of the "National Revival" Party.
"Our newspaper will highlight the developments taking place in the party and publish interviews with experts, political scientists, and politicians and analysts," Aik Khanumyan has said.
"Since the newspaper is a party edition, it is clear that more or less, the newspaper represents the public the thoughts and ideals upheld by the party itself. However, it would be wrong to call the newspaper an edition of propaganda, since it represents an open platform and people with different views and from different parties can express their opinions in the newspaper without any problems," the "Caucasian Knot" was told by Tigran Grigoryan, a political analyst, the editor-in-chief of the online edition "ArtsakhNews.am".
"Almost all of the existing media (both party and independent ones) are controlled by the authorities, and thus, most of them fail to highlight acute social, economic and political problems. I hope that the new newspaper will become a reference point for the whole of our society, and in the near future, we will get new media that will prepare the ground for pluralism in all spheres of our life," Tigran Grigoryan has expressed his hope.
