Anti-Putin Video Illegally Broadcasted on Russian Local TV

An ordinary news block on the Chelyabinsk local TV-channel was suddenly interrupted by an opposition video with a sharp criticism of the current Russian President.

      A video evidence published on YouTube on August 6, shows that the anti-president video starts instead of a topic about new tomographs which was announced by the newscaster. In particular, it is said in the video that Putin's ruling has brought "criticism from almost all international human rights organizations" to Russia. It is also mentioned about unsolved murders of Russian journalists Anna Politkovskaya and Natalya Estemirova, Mikhail Khodorkovsky trial and house explosions in Moscow and Buinaksk. "Freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom in general - it's all not welcomed in Putin's Russia...Corruption during Putin's ruling has reached an enormous scale", it is said in the video.

      The video was assembled from different parts of a Georgian TV documentary "Russia: Putin's Times". It lasted about two minutes and then was interrupted by a commercial broadcast.

      The incident took place on July 31, but Russian media informed about it only on August 2. As news portal reports, the anti-putin video was put on the air by one the TV channel's managing editors, who had been at loggerheads with the channel's managers and had decided to cross them up. The editor's name is not mentioned in any media but it is reported that he left his job the same day when the scandalous video was broadcasted.
