    Would you tell me Russian media

    Привет! Я из японии.

    Would you tell me the Russian media which is well known and perhaps the headquarter is in Siberia?

    I know Interfax but I can't remind of the other media that I want to know...Пожалуйста.

    Re: Would you tell me Russian media

    Do you mean "mass media"?
    I think, in Siberia there are only the regional mass media, so they are not well known... Hm, maybe I'm wrong.

    Итар-Тасс is very well known
    http://www.itar-tass.com/

    РИА-Новости is well known
    http://www.rian.ru/

    IMA-Press is well known
    http://www.ima-press.ru/

    Oh, Сибирское агентство новостей! (especially for you! )
    http://sibnovosti.ru/


    P.S. Just ask Google about "агентство новостей"
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Да да, mass-media or media..whatever.

    Спасибо большое, not only for telling me but adding the links.

    The media I wanted to know is РИА-Новости. And this webpage has the Japanese version! You would pronounce Новости as Navosti but in Japanese, this is called like..Norbosti so I think I'm confused.

    I'll take a look at other webpages, too

    NO! We pronounce Новости as Novasti.

    Strictly speaking, RIA "Novosti" is a news agency (as well, as "Interfax").
    And its proper name ("Novosti", means "News") must be pronounced "nOv*sti" (with stress on O and * for obscure sound between A and O).

    But how it can sound as "Norbosti"? A mystery.

    Oh, Спасибо болешое Оля и Scorpio!

    We say this like, "Но (nor) босчи"

    We have the sound "чи" orginally in Japanese also, but when we use "ти", this is only for the Western sound "ty" or "ti", etc. So чи is used instead of ти, depending on case.
    And we don't have V sound..only B.

    I hope this sounds funny to you all!!

    You are welcome

    So why you can't pronounce the first syllable just "Noh..." (without "r")?
