Российские СМИ чрезвычайно важны для Кремля. Они преподносят российской общественности информацию о внутренней политике и распространяют создаваемый Кремлем имидж России по всему миру. Поэтому власти осуществляют жесткий контроль над СМИ, особенно над телевидением - главным средством коммуникации Кремля.

В этой лекции Роман Ошаров исследует состояние российских печатных и онлайн СМИ и перспективы независимой журналистики в условиях постоянных препон свободе прессы в России.

Russia’s media is of paramount importance to the Kremlin. It communicates the Kremlin’s domestic policies and projects the desired image of Russia in the world to the public. Hence, the control over the media, most importantly the television, which serves as a principal agenda-setter in the country, is firm.

This lecture will examine the state of Russia’s domestic broadcast, print and online media, and the prospects for independent journalism amidst perennial challenges to press freedom.
