Press Secretary Of Armenian President Says The "Exclusive Interview"

PRESS SECRETARY OF ARMENIAN PRESIDENT SAYS THE "EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW" PUBLISHED IN "MK" IS PRODUCT OF SICK IMAGINATION OF NEWSPAPER’S JOURNALIST

YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 22, ARMENPRESS: The newspaper "Moskovsky
Komsomolets" has published an exclusive interview with President Serzh
Sargsyan, which contains a number of issues to seem strange at first
glance. Is there such a thing?

"The published "exclusive interview" with the President Serzh Sargsyan
is nothing but a product of a sick imagination of the newspaper’s
journalist Ekaterina Sazheneva. Mr. Sargsyan had an interview with
neither that journalist, nor the newspaper itself.

The article’s author partook along with dozens of other representatives
in "Days of a Russian word" organized at President’s residence. The
issues marked in "interview" haven’t been spoken at all, and Mr. Serzh
Sargsyan’s words were completely misquoted and are beyond journalists’
ethic.

The "journalist" probably relied on her memory which is definitely
poor. Some Presidents’ thoughts in non-existent interview are out of
context, true meaning and placed emphasis.

Add that she didn’t even inform Presidential press office of her
intention to publish such a material thus violating the basic rules
of professional journalism. Publishing such a fabricated interview
in a prestigious edition can only cause a confusion and regret.
