Russian journalist: One cannot say that Russian mass media are biased in covering Nagorno-Karabakh peace process

One cannot say that Russian mass media are biased in covering the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process, well-known Russian journalist Alan Kasayev said during a roundtable discussion on the peculiarities of interethnic relations in the post-Soviet area.
'

The event was organized by the North-South Politological Center and was attended by an ArmInfo correspondent.  "We have too few specialists on Armenia and Azerbaijan to be able to say that any of them may be biased. I can say that some people are not professional but I cannot blame anybody of being biased. On the other hand, when covering Armenia or Azerbaijan, Russian journalists continue thinking as representatives of a center that has been, has and will have a serious influence on the Nagorno-Karabakh. So, it is natural that they are not trusted. The problem is that if they avoiding the influence of Armenia or Azerbaijan, they fall under the influence of some imperial position. So, in this situation, they must try not to harm and to be as neutral as possible," Kasayev said.  

He noted that most of the Russian readers and TV viewers are not interested in conflicts that do not affect Russia. "But since we have big Armenian and Azerbaijani communities, we have certain audience - plus political scientists, ethnographers, conflictologists," Kasayev said.
