– The situation on the Polish media market is becoming more and more difficult. He is increasingly burdened with the stigma of politics and has a negative impact on him. Rzeczpospolita and Parkiet remain outside the main dividing lines of Polish political life. But they have a clear compass of values ​​- defending the free market, protecting private property, respecting human and civil rights as understood by Western Europe, supporting Polish membership in the European Union and NATO. Not everyone likes it – says Grzegorz Hajdarowicz, the main investor and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Gremi Media SA in a statement posted on the Rzeczpospolita website.
