As expected Russian President Vladimir Putin signed on 13 August a decree
re-establishing federal government control over all of the Russia's broadcasting and
relay stations for television and radio signals by consolidating them under the
management of a single government corporation, ITAR-TASS and RIA-Novosti
reported. According to the text of the decree as published on the website strana.ru,
the newly created corporation, Russian Television and Radio Broadcasting Network
(RTRS), will assume control over the federal signal distribution center in Moscow as
well its regional subdivisions located in subjects of the Russian Federation. The decree
also empowers the government to cancel any agreements or deals that would result in
the ''illegal estrangement of technical means and objects from federal ownership.''
