Federation Council awards RBC reportersFederation Council awards RBC reporters
Head of the politics department of Russian Information Agency RosBusinessConsulting Natalya Kapyshina received an award in the nomination 'For the Best and Systematic Coverage of the Federation Council's Activities'.
The contest was organized by the Federation Council, the Moscow Journalist Union and MediaSoyuz.
This is not the first award granted by Russian parliament to RBC. In January 2004, the State Duma awarded the best parliamentary journalists, including RBC special reporter Olga Bondareva (in the category for information agencies) and RBC TV reporter Irina Melnikova (in the category for television stations).
"RBC's editorial policies are based on using first-hand information, and that's what attracts our readers," RBC General Director Yury Rovensky said. "RBC's cooperation with government agencies is extremely important not only from the viewpoint of our media activities. It also helps develop the information environment of Russia, as RBC sees its mission in promoting Russia's political, economic, and humanitarian integration with Europe."
