Matios said that this is not an attempt to influence the policies of the publication.

“We don’t encroach on editorial policies or on the ability and the “intellectual depth”, in brackets, materials”, – said Matios.

In the publication referred to ongoing economic tools of pressure.

“This means that without stopping the operation of the amended criminal prosecution, attacks controlled by radicals, searches and security intrusions by law enforcement officers in the office of the holding, the government resorted to economic tools of pressure,” – said in the editorial of the News.

“Changing the terms of the lease will lead to a breakdown of the production process, which is seen as impeding journalistic activities. That is why the Media holding did not intend to leave office and will defend their right and the terms of the lease in the Mall Gulliver,” – said in the message.
