Novaya Gazeta Gets Leaks

Novaya Gazeta said Wednesday that it has agreed to join forces with Wiki-Leaks to expose corruption in Russia.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has materials specifically about Russia that have not been published yet, and Novaya Gazeta will help make them public, the newspaper said.

Novaya Gazeta received unlimited access to the WikiLeaks database, which has a “wide range” of materials, including documents about Anna Politkovskaya’s murder in 2006 as well as information about Russian politicians’ ties to organized crime, newspaper spokeswoman Nadezhda Prusenkova said by phone. The newspaper will start releasing materials next month.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
