Russia chides BBCs repentance

BBC News

Russia's minister for the media has said "serious political pressure" triggered the resignations of BBC bosses Gavyn Davies and Greg Dyke.

Mikhail Lesin compared the apology issued by the BBC with those of Soviet writers criticised by the Communist Party during the years of "stagnation".

He warned the BBC against "sterile coverage, not only of Iraq but also of other government-related activities".

An enlightened perspective!
