Tina Kandelaki: “You have created a real cultural revolution”

According to Ted Turner, readers are interested in only three things: sex, scandals and sports. Considering the look of periodicals produced by Sanoma Independent Media, it is safe to say that Russian readers have much wider interests that include business, travel and even science.

You have created a real cultural revolution in your 20 years in business, showing young woman for the first time the proper way to apply lipstick, and young men how to build up their muscles and dress stylishly. Thanks to you, both novice and experienced businesspeople are always up to date on the latest events and recreation enthusiasts know all of the best vacation destinations. An entire generation of modern Russians has grown up with your magazines, and I hope that you continue cultivating stylish, smart, successful and dynamic readers.
