THIS MESSAGE (MATERIAL) IS CREATED AND (OR) DISTRIBUTED BY A FOREIGN MASS MEDIA PERFORMING THE FUNCTIONS OF A FOREIGN AGENT AND (OR) A RUSSIAN LEGAL ENTITY PERFORMING THE FUNCTIONS OF A FOREIGN AGENT.Save "Medusa"!https://assist.meduza.ioOn the night time of August 31, in Yerevan, on the age of 70, Manana Aslamazyan, the founder and head of the Russian department of the Internews worldwide basis, which was engaged in skilled retraining of journalists, died in a automotive accident. From its founding in 1997 till its liquidation in 2007, hundreds of federal and regional reporters, editors and producers have been skilled by way of this basis to work in line with essentially the most superior Western requirements of high quality journalism. In 2007, a felony case was opened towards Aslamazyan in Russia - about "forex smuggling"; she imported cash to finance the work of the inspiration - and insisted that she was being persecuted for political causes. In consequence, Aslamazyan left the nation, and the Russian Internews quickly closed. Here is what her buddies and colleagues write concerning the loss of life of Manana Aslamazyan. Victor Muchnik Journalist, one of many founders and editor-in-chief of the TV2 channel I'm orphaned as soon as once more. We're orphaned. It would not slot in my head. Manana Aslamazyan died in Yerevan at this time. Hit by a automotive. We have now been buddies for thirty years. Manana was... The absurd phrase "was." We have been supposed to satisfy tonight. And so they did not meet. She did not name again, which wasn't like her. Let's go look. In intensive care they mentioned they could not do something. Manana had plans. I needed to carry “Artdocfest” right here in Yerevan. Extra exactly, to assist some guys with the group. She at all times helped everybody. Mates, girlfriends, some youth. For everybody, she was Mamaney Aslamazyan. Sizzling, energetic, vigorous, sensible. And really sort. I liked Moscow very a lot. However it appears that evidently throughout these months she was blissful right here, in Yerevan. We wandered across the metropolis, recalled varied issues from our tv life. We deliberate to journey round Armenia once more. I liked listening to her tales a lot. And the way Manana cooked! We nonetheless managed to get a lesson in cooking dolma from her. I watched her prepare dinner, and my coronary heart skipped a beat with admiration. She did all the things with coronary heart. Dolma, tv, Internews. Neither Internews nor the TV that she tried to create in Russia turned out to be of no use to this nation. From her beloved Moscow, Manana moved to her beloved Armenia. However, it appears, she missed Moscow. Nevertheless, she was not a uninteresting particular person. Any area she discovered herself in got here to life subsequent to her. Now there might be much less residing on this world. I am crying. See you quickly, Manana-jan. Ksenia Turkova Journalist, TV presenter (NTV, TV-6, REN-TV) In the identical years that I labored at Echo, I additionally labored at Internews (for many who know, it was actually throughout the road). She taught at their well-known tv faculties, was the second instructor, or apprentice, with such masters as Svetlana Sorokina, Yulia Muchnik, Marianna Maksimovskaya, Pasha Sheremet. Developed and wrote a distant course on writing information texts on TV; then all the things distant was new, 2007 ... Manana was not only a inventive heart, however the Mom of this complete area and everybody who entered it. Sadly, like all the things residing and actual, Internews interfered, didn't slot in - even then. Manana was squeezed out of Russia, they got here to Internews with searches (by the way in which, my distant program, which we developed with such problem, was someplace on the seized computer systems), after which they fully closed it. If the Moscow Internews had survived to this present day, it might have been acknowledged as a overseas agent or an undesirable group. Ksenia Larina wrote that all the things is collapsing, and I really feel that all the things is collapsing ... Every part that has formed me as a journalist, publicist, as an individual has lengthy been disappearing one after one other, collapsing, falling into some sort of abyss. And it is like there's nothing left to carry on to. Who am I now? The place I'm? And was all of it? Expensive Manana, I'll at all times bear in mind 🖤 Mikhail Degtyar Soviet and Russian TV journalist, producer, presenter (RTR, TVC) Horrible information got here from Yerevan... The great Manana Aslamazyan has handed away. Though it might be attainable to not point out the surname: if we mentioned Manana, then, in fact, we meant that it was solely about her. A lot could be written about Manan. She has achieved so much for the event of regional tv in Russia, and would have achieved much more if she had not been stopped. Manana was compelled to immigrate. She lived and labored in Paris for a very long time. Then, in 2010, we, members of the Academy of Russian Tv, voted for Manana to be awarded the TEFI Particular Prize "For private contribution to the event of Russian tv." Nevertheless, for the primary time in 16 years of TEFI's existence, the title of the winner was not introduced from the stage. It was a shame to the Academy that was by no means washed away. However, the award was nonetheless awarded to Manana. Virtually secretly, on the All-Russian Exhibition Heart - this photograph was taken simply after this award. I am unable to imagine she's useless... Masha Slonim Soviet, British and Russian journalist, instructor on the Internews College of Journalism We're in grief, yesterday the completely distinctive, beloved and solely Manana Aslamazyan died.
