Democracy and the free media in Russia emerged strongly in the 1990s, but today the situation is much different. The Russian journalists are working in a deteriorating media and legislative environment. Russia has become one of the most dangerous countries in the world for a working journalist.
Fojo has implemented journalist training programs in Russia since 1995, in cooperation with local partners. The programs have been designed for journalists in print, web and broadcast media.
