Procter & Gamble Draws Ire Of Russian Opposition For Ads On Pro-Government TV Program

March 20, 2012: 03:11 AM EST
Political opponents of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin called for a boycott of Procter & Gamble Co.'s products after the company placed advertisements on state-run television network NTV's broadcast of the documentary film, "Anatomy of a Protest," which alleged that opposition groups paid people to attend protest rallies. P&G, the biggest advertiser in Russia, said it respects people's right to express their opinions but refuses to be used as a tool in the country's political fights.
