Publishing

LITHUANIA'S ONLY RUSSIAN-LANGUAGE DAILY CEASES PUBLISHING.
"Ekho Litvy," which celebrated its 60th anniversary last year, was not
published on 2 March due to financial problems, BNS reported. The
paper, which has a press run of 5,000-8,000, had been the
Russian-language publication of the Lithuanian Communist Party until
it was privatized by its staff in the early 1990s. The paper's
director-general, Raisa Stankeviciene, said the financial difficulties
were caused by the ongoing simultaneous negotiations between three
shareholders with potential buyers, whose identities were revealed.
The paper's staff believed the publication had stopped only
temporarily and would resume in "maybe 20-30 days." SG
