Andrei Kolesnikov gave an interview to Yuri Dude.
Russian journalist Andrei Kolesnikov, who is known as a chronicler of Russian President Vladimir Putin, receives a salary of more than eight thousand dollars a month, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.
This he said in an interview with Yuri Dude on YouTube.
The Dude said that earlier former General Director and chief editor of the publishing house “Kommersant” Andrey Vasilyev announced that the salary of Kolesnikov was 12 thousand dollars.
“Well messed up a bit, of course… Now it is less. Especially when those 12 thousand dollars, which actually was smaller. It was eight thousand. But it was a massive eight thousand at that time. It’s not the eight thousand dollars, now,” explained Kolesnikov.
At this point he receives “less than eight thousand, but more than the current eight”.
“I would say… Well, what do you think? I am working not only a special correspondent of the publishing house. I’m still working Deputy Director of the publishing house “Kommersant”. That is, I receive two salaries. I fulfill them, Yes,” said the journalist.
