He also stressed that his edition is a news magazine whose objective is to write about actual processes in the country and abroad.  The fact that at the same time two other magazines published articles devoted to this topic stress the relevance of the topic. From the article that we published it is clear that we didn’t want to insult anybody”, - noted M. Fishman.
