Public Chamber Members, State Duma deputies, authority representatives, cultural workers, TV channel representatives, and experts in the field of broadcasting participated in the meeting. Previously, parliament hearing participants recommended that the Public Chamber should make a suggestion as to the formation of the public television council’s personnel list that is to be submitted to the Russian President. Thus, procedure issues concerning the creation of Russia’s public television were discussed. The meeting's outcome was the Public Chamber's suggestion to include to the Public Television personnel, which is the main executing body of the channel, Russians over the age of 25 of an active civic position and out of public office. It is assumed that the prevailing entertainment content of the modern television will be counterbalanced by the program policy of the public television that will present a whole set of such areas of broadcasting as information, analytical, social and political, culture and enlightenment, and education. “The implementation of the “Public Television” project is a weighty initiative, and yet there is the apprehension that the conceptual realization might not be too impressive,” said Vitaly Fedko, General Manager of the War and Peace media group Public Corporation. “We need to reinforce the field of mass media with a new generation of personnel that will be able to find new solutions.”
