Подать заявку!


Страны, расположенные в соседних с Россией регионах, сталкиваются с растущей тенденцией, когда государство и олигархи контролируют медиа, транслирующие фейковые новости и пропаганду. В связи с этим живущие в Евразии люди все чаще получают необъективную информацию. В то же время эти люди сталкиваются со многими проблемами: от финансовых трудностей до глобальных проблем в области здравоохранения и угроз, исходящих от радикализованных групп, – все эти проблемы требуют качественного и объективного освещения.
