"Hasty replacing of press kiosks with the French model threatens the press distributors and publishers", - Dmitry Martynov, president of PDA, Part II

- Julia Kazakova indicates in her interview, that today a significant amount of press objects idle in Moscow. Is that right? What are the reasons?

- Indeed, in large metropolitan networks around 15-20 % of the objects are permanently or temporarily idle. Leaving aside administrative reasons, when kiosks were just brought in one place, as happened in the South-West in the metro Konkovo, where several stalls from different parts of Moscow were brought up to one place, the main reason will be the economics. Which ultimately is expressed by the absence of sellers. People just avoid to work in the press kiosks because of low salaries. And it is not always possible to pay more money - just in cases, when the  kiosk is located through passage areas, entrance locations close to public transport. In all other cases, especially in residential areas, the revenue of stalls is small and does not allow the vendors to pay a decent salary.
