Occupation authorities of the "LNR" have directively united all local media into a "state-owned" media holding Luganmedia. This is said in the message of the fake "Ministry of Communications".
"Within the framework of the program for reorganizing the media, a "state-owned" unitary enterprise Luganmedia has been created, - it notes.
The holding directively includes editorial offices of 15 weekly newspapers, six TV channels, two radio stations and 14 online media.
The occupation authorities admitted that their propaganda apparatus did not have a sufficient number of employees of creative professions. "The mass media need full-fledged editorial offices and full-fledged creative teams", - one of the occupation officials did not specify how the creation of the "media holding" would help to solve the problem of staff shortages.
At the same time, the "LNR" does not hide the fact that the reorganization of the propaganda machine operating in the occupied territory is aimed at creating "a unified administration, a unified system for setting goals and their implementation".
"Now the enterprise will have a unified control center for all local media", - the occupation administration stated as on something positive.
