Former Yeltsin Aide Joins Media

He used to do public relations for the president. Now he has a new job doing public relations for another guy who used to do public relations for the president. Together, they want to do public relations for Russia. Vyacheslav Kostikov, President Boris Yeltsin's loose-cannon press spokesman from 1992 to 1994, has re-emerged into the limelight, this time as the deputy director for Media Most, which owns NTV, the station run by Igor Malashenko, the man behind Yeltsin's 1996 election campaign. Media Most is owned by business mogul Vladimir Gusinsky and includes NTV television and NTV+ satellite television, Ekho Moskvy radio along with the Segodnya daily newspaper and magazines Itogi and 7 Dnei. When Kostikov ran public relations for the Kremlin from 1992 to 1994, he earned a reputation as a vocal liberal politician, who often made up policy on the run with little regard for Yeltsin's actual views.
