Alexander Dogadin, Russian Ambassador to Argentina about the Russian supplement in Clarin
«We welcomed this project even before the first issue of Rusia Hoy (Russia Now Today) was published. Information is a very powerful tool. The media have to be responsible for what they publish. They must be truthful and unbiased, providing full coverage of events in any given country. I think the Rusia Hoy supplement to Clarin, an influential Argentine newspaper, meets all these requirements. Our relations with Argentina have been on the up recently, especially over the past two years. A number of important events have taken place, including a visit to Moscow by Argentine President Cristina Fernández and visits to Argentina by Federation Council Chairman Sergei Mironov, St Petersburg Governor Valentina Matviyenko and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, not to mention many other events.»
«Russia and Argentina have developed a bilateral action plan to build their strategic partnership. This is a comprehensive plan, covering every area in our political, economic, trade, cultural, scientific, and technical cooperation. To translate this plan into action, we need full information on the participants and stages of its implementation. In Russia, there is great interest in what is going on in Argentina. And here, in Buenos Aires and other parts of Argentina, people are interested in what is happening in Russia. Rusia Hoy is an important and serious tool for keeping the Argentine public abreast on the latest that is going on in Russia.»
