We would rather have it continue further on, but the authorities of ‘Express’ TV channel decided to, begin quote, ‘due to shortage of financing replace ‘Sobytiya Nedeli’ program with ‘Itogi’ [Results] show,’ end quote. We still have no information what this ‘Itogi’ show will be about, because it doesn’t exist yet, but if that will be the case, you will be the ones to judge. Thank you for being with us for these weeks, months and years. Have a nice day, and believe in the future,” Dmitry Inyushkin said.
