Видели новость, что блогеров приглашают в ГосДуму на “Совет блогеров”? Так вот – меня тоже позвали. Что думаете?)

n an interview with “Interlocutor” Vlasov explained how the selection of bloggers for convening the council is taking place.
I am often asked: will you call on the advice of bloggers who make pizza from a loaf of bread in five minutes or some cream? Of course not. Such people are not interested in politics. However, there are bloggers who write about certain events that are relevant today.
Updated at 19:55 . Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Information Policy, Information Technologies and Communications Leonid Levin noted that Vlasov’s invitations are “a personal initiative of the deputy” and do not belong to the State Duma.
It is important to understand that this initiative has nothing to do with the decision of the State Duma. In the same way, similar Soviets, Commissions, Committees can propose the creation of all other deputies of the State Duma and try to increase their quoting on the Internet following their colleague Vlasov.
Earlier, Vlasov suggested that the chairman of the lower house of parliament, Vyacheslav Volodin, create a council of bloggers under the State Duma. “Their work experience can contribute to the development of a competent strategy for interaction with citizens in the network,” the deputy noted.
In late May, Vlasov had already submitted to the State Duma a proposal to create a commission of bloggers. On May 22, at the meeting Sasha Spielberg spoke about the work of videobloggers, proper communication with the audience, their attitude towards the rallies and the trial of Sokolovsky.
