Sociocultural Development of Russia’s Regions
So, I think that first of all it is important to give our audience the right to mobility. I am talking first of all about a young audience. We must allow them to go to those places where creativity has already been established, places with a certain socio-cultural style. They should be allowed to study it, and possibly bring it later to their cities. They do not have to be someone who create content or cultural artifacts professionally, they can just be consumers of cultural patterns, traditions, modern music or classical art, someone who gets impressions from travelling or from watching animation. But it is very important for us that eventually the content that was created as a result of these great investments and expertise finds its consumer. Both in terms of opportunities for people to travel and see these artifacts, and in terms of the right number of platforms and delivery technologies for people to receive this content

Sociocultural Development of Russia’s Regions
The main thing for us is the audience that those content creators have, and the means of distribution of content and creative solutions to those people who are interested in it, who would like or could use it. And, oddly enough, having creative content and creative solutions does not always automatically mean that the demand for these solutions is satisfied. Because there must be appropriate means of delivery and distribution of these solutions to their audience. And sometimes these concepts swap places – you need to deliver the audience to the creative solutions. Because when we are talking about cities with a population under a million, or 500 thousand, or 100 thousand, we are talking about half of the population of Russia. No matter what creative solutions we come up with, no matter what investments we have, no matter what museums we open, the people who live there, especially the young ones will simply get tired of what we have delivered to them collectively at some point

Creating Impact Content: How to Enhance the Media’s Contribution to Positive Social Change?
The demand for volunteers is a huge society-wide phenomenon. This demand was not at all fostered artificially – nobody was forced. Eighty per cent of Russians have expressed a desire to help those around them in one way or another. <...> The media has helped them find out how they can do this. Overall, there is an enormous demand in Russian society for doing good. <...> There is a huge number of positive requests, but these often go unfulfilled due to a lack of media support, infrastructure, or government attention. However, the degree of public interest is enormous

State, Business, Creative Industries – The Ecology of Global Public Culture
Global corporations must participate in the creation of global culture: They have a feeling for how consumption differs from region to region and what cycles exist

State, Business, Creative Industries – The Ecology of Global Public Culture
Among people under 20 […] ecological perception has not been imposed from outside – it is value number one. This means that within 10–20 years we will not even notice how the era has changed completely

New Platforms for Cooperation between China and Russia: Prospects for Development
We have signed agreements with the largest online cinemas and we are working on introducing media content from China to Russia. This is mutual recognition, regular use of the same platforms and goods. China accounts for production of 50% of animated games, which is over a billion dollars. This will be one of the key platforms for developing our relations
