The journalist of the portal "Petrozavodsk speaks" Antonina Kyabeleva also came to the meeting. This is reported in an article on the official website of the portal.
According to the data presented in the material, the meeting was also attended by the heads of Karelian state farms, JSC "Slavmo", representatives of the Rosselkhozbank, Director of LLC "Mayak" Igor Klopot.
Vladimir Labinov demanded that the press leave, stressing that the event is closed to journalists, which is expected, taking into account the trade secrets protected by law and the fact that that none of the companies and participants of the meeting were really ready to communicate with the press.
It is not indicated whether any other journalists were present at the meeting.
Having received a refusal and a demand to explain removing the press from the meeting, Labinov noted that he "never read an objective comment on the situation" from Antonina Kyabeleva.
Following the meeting between the Minister and the press, the regional media issued a boorish appeal to colleagues. It said, “The Minister does not like the journalist's articles, and only for this reason he decided to expel Kyabeleva from the meeting”.
"It’s interesting to know if the Minister got anything wrong? He is an official who is in the performance of his duties. It is not at home, but in a state institution, in a public place. He actually violated the law on mass media and obstructed the activities of a journalist whose criticism he does not like", writes ptzgovorit.ru
Now the editor-in-chief of the newspaper “TVR-Panorama” and the Union of Karelian journalists are asking for a legal assessment of the official's actions.
The situation spread to other regional media, with each publication increasing the harassment of the official.
Having studied publications on the topic of agriculture on the portal ptzgovorit.ru, The DairyNews concluded that they are indeed one-sided, representing the opinion of only one side in any situation.
In recent articles, it is reported about many farms affected by the reduction of state support and that the authorities require an increase in milk production by at least 3.2% and the implementation of reclamation works to issue subsidies. Are these requirements strict? Why should the state support inefficient production? There are no answers to these questions in the materials of the Karelian media.
