NEWSru is a Russian online news sites.[2] Originally it functioned as NTV's website under the address ntv.ru. The site remains part of Vladimir Gusinsky's media holding that includes a satellite TV broadcast company RTVi.

Yelena Bereznitskaya-Bruni replaced the initial Editor in Chief Igor Barchugov in 2001. The network has a head office in Moscow, Russia and two foreign posts. The network set up editorial offices in Israel and Ukraine.

History[edit]

The change of ownership at NTV was followed by a redesign of the news site which remained with the former NTV owner Vladimir Gusinsky.[3][4]

In April 2001 the TV channel became part of OAO Gazprom Media.[5][6]

In October 2002 the news site moved to another domain name, NEWSru.com[7][8] and the original domain ntv.ru has been transferred to the broadcasting company under the mutual arrangement.

Projects[edit]

Besides the basic site, the NEWSru service owns a number of special interest news sites.

Among defunct projects is 2004.newsru.com, devoted in due time to Russian presidential election, 2004.[9]
