Bonnier News and Amedia launch digital newspaper
Repost is a new independent digital newspaper in Russian, launched recently and supported via a non-profit foundation by Amedia in Norway and Bonnier News in Sweden.
Repost aims to reach a young audience inside Russia, and international media groups wish to join the coalition of donators standing up for free speech in Russia, says a source. Russia is currently ranked only number 155 on the Press Freedom Index, and it’s probably a fair guess that next year’s Reporters without Borders survey will offer an even worse position.
A free press can no longer operate inside Russia, so millions of news consumers now turn to exile media for impartial journalism. This is why Repost was soft-launched at https://wearerepost.com just recently, as a news provider in Russian language producing and curating independent news. A team of about ten journalists from Moscow and St Petersburg has been recruited to the newsroom in Tallinn.
