The Kremlin's new mass media is designed to control the mood of the business elite

The Kremlin plans to create their own mass media in order to "break the monopoly of liberalism" in the information environment. However, as a major competitor are named publications, which are positioned as business ones, like "Vedomosti" and "Kommersant".

Badovsky noted, that the resources of "Vzglyad.Ru" and "Dni.Ru" can become site for the new mass media.  "Vzglyad.Ru" was created in 2005 by media producer Konstantin Rykov, whose publishing house "Popular Literature" belongs to ISEPI.
