Inside Putin’s Propaganda Mirror Chamber: How Has Russia Lost the Free Press? – Mikhail Fishman

Mikhail Fishman, an anchor for the independent TV Rain news channel and researcher of the history of Russian journalism, discusses the history of press freedom in Russia, how it is disappearing under President Putin and why freedom of the press is vital for society.

This lecture at The Hague University of Applied Sciences is part of a series of lectures organized by The Moscow Times at European universities and given by Russian media professionals.

… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
