Lithuanian Newspaper Re-Launches Russian-Language Version
The Lithuanian newspaper Klaipeda has announced that it will restart its Russian-language version, DELFI reports.
The newspaper has been published in the port city of Klaipeda since 1945. For many years it was published in both Lithuanian and Russian, but due to financial difficulties, the Russian version was shut down in 2007.
The editor of the newspaper, Saulius Pocius, said that the newspaper would finance the Russian version using its own resources. “Regardless, there is a great need for a Russian-language newspaper in the city, and the Russian version always had a large readership. I think this is the right decision to return to the market.”
The first new Russian-language version will come out in the first half of May and will subsequently be published on a weekly basis every Monday. To begin with the newspaper will be based on translations from the Lithuanian version, but there are plans to write articles specifically for the Russian version.
