Interfax opens press center in Khanty-Mansiisk

Interfax Information Services Group has announced the opening of a press center in Khanty-Mansiisk.

"We view the opening of an information floor in the center of Russia‘s most oil-rich region – the Khanty-Mansiisk autonomous district – as just another inevitable phase in implementing the Interfax-Yugra project, which was launched about 10 years ago," said Interfax Deputy General Director and Director of Interfax‘s Regional Service Alexei Gorshkov.
"The Yugra News newswire issued within the framework of this project is one of the most in-demand information products in the district today. However, we see the necessity for its further qualitative improvement, in particular, by significantly expanding its informational coverage and increasing the flow of interesting and significant information from the region. I believe the new press center will facilitate the achievement of this goal a lot," Gorshkov said.
Khanty-Mansiisk district Governor Alexander Filipenko said, "With the opening of an Interfax press center, we have received the chance to report about what goes on in the district, voice our viewpoint on various problems, and receive comprehensive information."
"I am sure that our cooperation with Interfax will be mutually advantageous and fruitful in the future as well," he said.

The press center in Khanty-Mansiisk has become Interfax‘s thirteenth informational floor in Russia. The geography of Interfax‘s press centers today embraces virtually all crucial regions of the country and includes such cities as Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov-on-Don, Yekaterinburg, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, and Irkutsk. Yaroslavl, Tomsk, and Ryazan have been added to this list in the past four months.
