The Future of Investigative Journalism in Russia

Russian journalism faces many challenges in the current political environment in Russia. The central government controls all of the major television stations, while censorship over other media has expanded in the aftermath of the 2012 elections in Russia. Despite these trends, independent journalism is still alive in Russia, particularly in a handful of newspapers and some radio stations of limited reach. Five ground-breaking Russian journalists discussed their experiences as well as the future of investigative journalism in Russia.
