The Russian Media: Lessons From the 1990s – Nataliya Rostova

Nataliya Rostova is one of the leading researchers on Russian media. In her lecture "The Russian Media: Lessons of the 1990s," Rostova discusses how the vector of Russian media development, established after the collapse of the U.S.S.R., led to the Putin regime — and explains who among Putin's functionaries are the real pillars of the regime.

This lecture at George Washington University is part of a series of talks by media professionals and experts on Russia organized by The Moscow Times at leading universities and research centers around the world.

… 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.
