Tatler, “Soviet Sport” and Forbes: which publications are read in the presidential administration and the State Duma

Tatler,

Although the death of the print press has been predicted for several years, not everyone rely on Telegram and other social networks for fresh news. For example, officials clearly love to flip through the newspaper for a cup of coffee – today there is information about what kind of press is preferred in the presidential administration (AP), the government apparatus, the Federation Council and the State Duma.

They monitor not only economic and political life, but also secular life. Thus, the AP has issued two subscriptions to the Tatler magazine. However, this is not surprising, because politicians and billionaires (and those who combine these characteristics) are often written there. True, Tatler is inferior in popularity to many publications. For comparison: 12 copies of the newspaper “Soviet Sport”, 15 copies of Forbes and 32 copies of “Komsomolskaya Pravda” are brought to the offices of the Presidential Administration. The most popular publication turned out to be “Kommersant” – as many as 54 subscriptions were issued!

Among the favorites are also Vedomosti (35), Rossiyskaya Gazeta (39), Moskovsky Komsomolets (37), Argumenty i Fakty and Izvestia (25 each). They also read the liberal newspaper Novaya Gazeta in the Presidential Administration – they subscribe to 21 copies at once. Recall that this year, Novaya Gazeta editor-in-chief Dmitry Muratov was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for “efforts to preserve freedom of thought as an indispensable condition for democracy and peace.”

In total, subscriptions were made to 160 Russian publications for administration officials – all this cost 6.65 million rubles. Another 8.5 million rubles were spent on subscriptions to foreign publications, including The Economist, Paris Match, Der Spiegel.

Officials in the White House turned out to be less reading (or more frugal). A total of 65 newspapers and magazines for the amount of 3.36 million rubles have been subscribed for the government apparatus. The preferences in the press are similar, except that they also read “Krasnaya Zvezda”, the newspaper of the Russian Armed Forces.

The apparatus of the Federation Council subscribed to 69 publications for the amount of 1.4 million rubles. Well, in the State Duma they signed up for 242 publications, which cost 3.5 million rubles. Senators are in demand for Kommersant, Expert, Vedomosti, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Moskovsky Komsomolets, Izvestia and Nezavisimaya Gazeta, and the deputies also have Komsomolskaya Pravda and Sport Express. … It is noted that the deputies also subscribe to publications on law, medicine, and economics.

After reading the newspapers and magazines are transferred to the library. Reportedly, before round tables or parliamentary hearings, officials are often asked to make a selection of relevant materials on certain topics.
