exactly help pass the main news stories the u.n. investigators say that syrian artillery is responsible for less than twenty of the one hundred eight deaths in who the rest including children show signs of brutal execution the syrian government says the evidence points at opposition islamists while the rebels insist. committed the atrocities. russian internet security experts uncover a massive cyber attack targeting computers across the middle east they suspect the malicious virus known as flame is sponsored by a foreign government. and the image of occupy protesters in the us media shifts from disorganized slackers to terrorists posing
a threat to the country that is julian grills the group's activists about their true goals in the latest edition of his interview program that you can see throughout the day here on r.t. . well that's it for me in the team for the moment we'll be back with another summer in fifteen minutes from now in the meantime we talk to the russian communications minister who was recently appointed by president putin as he refresh the face of the country's government so if you have an answer find out about his plans. you go i mean rush is newly appointed communications minister and you're also twenty nine and you are the youngest member of the cabinet it's really great to have you with us today thank you so much thank you for the opportunity so we are putin has brought as many as sixteen new spaces into the new cabinet and that's
really in response to the popular demand for new faces but of course there's concern that it wasn't really a renewable but was was there a rich reshuffle and then you are really generally wanted very few new faces in that cabinet do you feel an extra pressure because of that well look truly. well i believe that. the kind of weather. sox success story of the must media called it my my my appointment it could be a wonderful example for many even teenagers is just about you if you want to reach some. results if you want to be successful you can just do some you can just start generating ideas you can just start implementing them. and they don't see any kind of pressure you know the public outcry for fresh faces was invigorated by virtue of new communications i mean if you look at it during the protests the biggest number of protesters was probably hundred twenty thousand really nothing on
a scale of this country and yet it cost such an uproar the whole world of talking about it and taking into consideration there was no revolution there was no bloodshed how much of a game changer are the new media world of politics in russia will ever be the same after this well definitely new media and just the the axis of our war households to the broadband internet is definitely reshaping the we we. are now with the how we do business and how we communicate also on political issues i fully agree that it's pretty hard to compare these relatively small numbers of people to view to the whole country and if we speak about internet access still even if it was stated that for example young turks has more. visitors then probably the first channel or the first to the channel in russia the. nevertheless if you speak about the general coverage of the country including some far distance villages television
is still the probably major player when you speak about the media but but it was because. it is especially moscow some of this is for example and the like seventy eight percent of households are already connected to the broadband access it definitely plays. a stronger role what's your perception of the. in rochelle that same five to six years do you see the new media so the internet edging out completely the old type of media is different not completely i could hardly imagine any example in the world any country in the world. with with the with the complete change but still there will be some some influence on that and once again i'd like to state that it's more about some. far distance territories that today's to have a huge capacity to grow if it's because of broadband access that will be the major
concern of the foreign minister as well because we want to. close this digital gap is that on the priority they banned access because i know you've tweeted recently asking people what they would like to see change in the first place in your ministry so what's going to progress axis increasing media freedom fighting monopoly or what what's your priority at this point to broadband access is one of the key infrastructure development issues of every country in the world today it's probably as much much important as building roads bridges and so one that is what will be different of the focus to me but for us it's a big issue it's definitely hard to bring broadband access to every single citizen in russia for example rather than in singapore speak about some other priorities definitely. we want to do to make the telecom market a competitive one. still there are some issues about that and my personal position is that the different look have to bring in competition i know that question
publishers are concerned and they've been warning about the growing monopolies in the russian media market how true is that anything that is. threatening democracy in this country i don't see any kind of a wriggle government regulation of the most media market in general still still there is some government into. from the kind of a government must media but from the legal point of view there's no actual legal barriers for the must meet the market development that is why hopefully we're not the country where for example somehow we limit the internet access to certain content to certain websites as it often happens in many other parts of the world and so one that is why i believe it's the field for some competition and hopefully more and more investors could come into the series will talking about censoring and
limiting the content. we've seen what a powerful tool internet it's over the past month and year i mean it has made revolutions. have brought down regimes and even. if we put revolutions aside people look at the occupy activists or the u.k. rebels it's obvious that they've been able to use internet much more efficiently than the government authorities have just how much do you think government all over the wall not only in russia should interfere in this domain where is the fine line between really censoring the internet and go go is all policy well i believe that the only kind of interference from the government in this area should should cover such issues. for example protection of our with children from the not allowed content. it should also cover some some intellectual property incorporate issues
but it's definitely not about restricting access to certain communications services certain websites and mr manager for many times stated he's very famous statement that freedom is better than not freedom and it's a key concept and i believe that i would. untreated. should should should follow this rule. on the other hand it's definitely a good lesson for the for the whole government for the federal government for the regional government and even for municipalities the new media and electronic ways of communication is a wonderful example how we can positively not negatively but positively use the technology to communicate with our citizens for example the whole open government initiative that was headed by mr mcveigh when he was now the president of russia now was about this this issue so how we could use this technology how we could use
this. new media and this these new challenges to. to change the way we communicate with the citizens why we're at the elec trying to mark. democracy to believe in it i mean and if yes then russia in its present state or something like that i do believe in democracy but democracy sometimes it's so much focused on totally electronic elections i think that democracy is. why the concept and we don't have just to think about it. could be somehow done with i don't know issuing electronic digital signatures to every every citizen or using our mobile phones i think democracy is more about influencing particular government. decisions is about trying to find and state some priority issues i believe that we could introduce some kind of
a federal level regulation on that so that. every every single government institution should use this data from coming coverage from this information systems that are being used almost every day. and use this information with the same responsibility as they for example have to proceed as their. incoming paper based mail from from from citizens are another topic intellectual property is another thing that really requires requires regulations not only in russia but in general globally i know that your predecessor came up with an initiative to make all media contact on the internet i'm protected i mean virtually free unless a producer of that content specifies otherwise that's actually in stark contrast with the us and the e.u. it's like stop online privacy act or anti counterfeiting trade agreement which protect producers are you going to continue this policy mr medvedev himself has
stated his initiatives on the g eight and g twenty i think that everybody remembers that and we think we have to follow this discourse up of the so i didn't if occasion of how to how to protect the content that being published electronically so we believe that we live in the in the century of the increasing digital connectivity increasing increasing the value of digital content content and so that we would think that publishers they do have to decide on their own how to how to protect it the way we believe that we could keep this initiative and try to find out some. intercountry some international discussion on that so the worries about allan's between those who make the content and those who consume it believe the balance is a kind of the open market so. consumers and producers the have to decide what we
want to give this they have the freedom or for. we want to give all the possibilities to the cotton producers to decide on that so that was the kind of initiative offered by the ministry that you seem like a very. man as far as technologies go to. believe that a world one day could be hundred consent digitalized what the world but we could suddenly reach the hundred percent possibility to communicate electronically. there but. i believe it's more realistic that it will be always like ninety five percent just because the there are sometimes to call it you could be could be very pricey but create really more expensive than printing text on a fresh paper every day when you think when you think the last newspaper will get printed i think that newspapers rule exists for i don't know those of years
but suddenly they happened they're printed newspaper also get very pricey very cost ineffective and we'll start getting more and more information through the interim adam or some i don't know integrated device is almost everywhere but it's always about the. business and personal effectiveness that is why the technology revolution also makes or of aleutian in the way how we interact and i think you for a precious nearly a point of communications minister thank you very much for this interview thank you . there hasn't been anything good on t.v. . it is to get the maximum political impact. before source material is what helps keep journalism honest we.
