ITAR-TASS reveals Urals information center in Yekaterinburg

ITAR-TASS Director General Sergei Mikhailov and Sverdlovsk Governor Yevgeny Kuyvashev unveiled the Urals information center in Yekaterinburg on Monday.

The center is the first such structure within the agency's new network of regional operations, ITAR-TASS reports.

Mikhailov said similar centers will be opened in other cities, including Rostov, Novosibirsk and Khabarovsk.

"The main thing in the new policy of ITAR-TASS is to bring regional news to a federal and world level," Mikhailov said, according to ITAR-TASS.

Governor Kuyvashev noted a lack of objectivity and accuracy in media reports, adding that he hopes the centers will "increase interest in the unique possibilities and potentials of our region," ITAR-TASS reports.
