Russia has essentially banned professional journalism. The Russian government has “cancelled” us right when Russian citizens and the whole world need us the most. Factual and independent reporting is in more demand than ever: people want to know the truth about this catastrophic war and the damage it does to Russian society.
On April 7, 2022, Novaya Gazeta. Europe launched a Russian-language news channel on Telegram. Shortly after that, we brought our reporting to Twitter, both in Russian and in English. Today, on April 20, we are launching our website as a fully-fledged European media platform. Here, we will tell the whole truth about Russia and the war against Ukraine, regardless of what the Kremlin thinks about it.
Reporters of Novaya Gazeta. Europe are counting on your support. In a few days, we plan to launch a crowdfunding campaign. We bring Europe to you, regardless of where you are, on both sides of the border that has divided our continent once again.
