NO GAG ORDER ON CROP ESTIMATES?
Publication: Monitor Volume: 1 Issue: 25
Russian deputy premier Aleksandr Zaveryukha denied an Interfax report that the Russian security services had classified Russian crop estimates, Moscow radio reported June 2. But his denial–concerning the source of the classification rather than the fact of it–did little to dampen public concern. Segodnya on June 2 denounced the plan to restrict information on crops, noting that even the CIA could make good estimates in this area. The paper suggested that the statistical service may have decided to restrict this information because of recent predictions by Yeltsin himself on just how large the crop would be.
