Also, Head of General Management of Deutsche Welle said that their representatives did not have a “legal possibility” to take part in a meeting of the State Duma Commission on the investigation of the foreign states' interference in the Russia's internal affairs, as “the broadcasting company is an institution under public law of Germany and in this regard is accountable to German supervisory authorities”.

He also invited Vasilii Piskarev to come to Bonn or Berlin to meet with Deutsche Welle’s Director General ”for a more detailed discussion of the issue.“
