    The demand for post-mainstream journalism and alternative media is growing due to the fact that the world is moving toward a multipolar system, in which nations would have the right for their own traditions and level of development, Director General of Rossiya Segodnya International Media Group Dmitry Kiselev said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the media group head, in recent years, the United States has used "mainstream" media to support its foreign policy, such as the intervention in Iraq, deployment in Afghanistan or aiding the Kiev forces in Ukraine.

    "People in the world do not like this much, and there is a demand for alternative information — that is what the post-mainstream journalism is," Kiselev said, speaking at the New Era of Journalism: Farewell to Mainstream international media forum in Moscow.

    According to Kiselev, countries such as Russia, China Iran and, "secretly," even Japan have a different understanding of the way the world is designed.

    "People do not want a unipolar world, with a sole country’s leadership supporting its own interests, but a multicultural, multicolored, multipolar design, with the right of every nation for its own level of development, its own traditions. And this implies post-mainstream journalism," he added.

    The international media forum is taking place in Russia's capital on June 6-7. It is hosted by the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency and is part of the 75th anniversary of the Soviet Information Bureau. Media experts from over 30 countries of the world take part in the forum.
