• Independent media struggles to be heard as Kremlin crackdown continues

    My first piece for ABC news Australia on how Russian authorities force opposition outlets to self-censor by making public examples of those who cross government red lines.

    Below is a short video I made inside the TV Rain (or Dozhd) newsroom. The channel has had its own share of problems in the past, even broadcasting for a month from an apartment after being kicked out of its central Moscow headquarters.

    TV Rain is now based in a trendy area in Moscow’s north, surrounded by cafes and start-ups.

    More pressure is likely to be felt by the channel however in the run-up to the next presidential election in 2018.
