Would you be able to work as a journalist in Russia? Do you know how Russian colleagues dribble between the strict media laws and write between the lines to give the public the information it needs? When Nordic and Russian journalists planned a cross-border investigative project, it became obvious that the Westerners had little knowledge about the working conditions and methods of their Russian colleagues – but a lot of unbased bias.
That was the starting point for the book “Journalism по-русски” (Russian title "Журналистика in Russian"), published in September 2020 by the 4-country journalistic cooperation Barents Press International and now being presented at Dataharvest Digital. Learn how Russian journalists navigate the strict media legislation and write between the lines – and add your own experiences. The book can be downloaded for free here.
