Russian Ambassador to Indonesia Opens SputnikPro Session

On October 10, with the support of the Russian Embassy in Indonesia, the first SputnikPro session took place at the University of Indonesia (Universitas Indonesia), the country’s leading educational and research center.
When opening the event, Russian Ambassador to Indonesia Lyudmila Vorobyova said, “The history of our bilateral relations is steeped in a legacy of mutual respect and friendship. Established 73 years ago our diplomatic ties have paved the way for a vast partnership in various fields. True journalism seeks to provide balanced and accurate accounts of events without succumbing to bias or external pressure twisting the truth and thus twisting the history. So today you will hear real stories about Russian reporters upholding true journalism.”
During an online meeting, Sputnik's Director of International Cooperation Vasily Pushkov told the audience about the principles of the work of a contemporary information agency, the specifics of the organization of state and private media, the standoff between the unipolar and multipolar vectors in the global media space, and the phenomenon of fake news.

Lecturer at the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Indonesia Ardhanareswari Handoko thanked the organizers after the event: “It is always great to grasp the perspective of media practitioners from other parts of the globe on issues related to media and communication. Thank you for sharing your views with the studentsand encouraging them in a fruitful discussion.”
