We prefer to lose certain number of our readers in order not to lose the newspaper, the Editor-in-Chief of Yeni Musavat Newspaper, Rauf Arifoglu, informed Trend.
He said that the recent price increase for the energy carriers and communal services created necessity of increasing the prices for the newspapers. Rauf Arifoglu said that the Editorial Office of Yeni Musavat Newspaper decided to increase the prices for the newspaper. But they wait for the decision of the printing houses. If the printing houses increase the prices, we will also take the same step. The prices for the paper have already been increased. We will also increase the prices in order not to fully lose the newspaper although it will lead to the decrease of the readers of the newspaper, he said.
According to him, other daily newspapers have also decided to increase the prices, but no-one wants to become the first in this issue.
The heads of several printing houses say that the prices for typography will raise.
