Interfax-South opens press center in Krasnodar

The Interfax-South news agency, incorporated in the Interfax Information Services Group, has opened a press center in Krasnodar, the second such outlet in the Southern Federal District, following the opening of a press center in Rostov-on-Don.

"I am sure that Interfax has come to stay," Krasnodar territory Governor Alexander Tkachyov said while commenting on the opening of the new press center. "The opening of a press center of the leading Russian news agency in Krasnodar is an important event for the whole territory, above all in terms of covering economic events and creating a decent investment image," he said.
"The work of Interfax journalists in the economic sector will first of all promote the improvement of the Krasnodar territory‘s investment appeal both in Russia and abroad," Tkachyov said.
The press center in Krasnodar is the nineteenth such outlet in Russia. The network of Interfax press centers embraces virtually all important regions of Russia. In particular, they are located in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Rostov-on-Don, Yekaterinburg, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Tomsk, Perm, Kazan, Khanty-Mansiisk, Ryazan, Yaroslavl and Voronezh.
