Baku, July 17, AZERTAC
“Although the COVID-19 pandemic has imposed a number of limitations on media activity, it brought new experiences which can be applied in the post-pandemic period,” said First Deputy Director General of the Russian news agency TASS Mikhail Gusman at the online webinar of European Alliance of News Agencies.
In his presentation, Mikhail Gusman highlighted the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on media, and shared his experiences to address the emerging issues. "The pandemic has changed our view in many things. We could not have imagined that it would be possible to work in such conditions. If we used to wait for an interview with someone for several days, now it has become much easier. These experiences will continue to be effective even after the pandemic," he emphasized.
