This seminar offers an exclusive opportunity for those not so familiar with Russia to get close to the political reality of our big and important Eastern neighbour.

From St Petersburg we will observe how politicians, journalists and ordinary people act in the first round of the 2018 presidential election (March 18).

  • Why is Putin so popular in his home country?
  • Are there any realistic alternatives to Putin?
  • Does democracy actually exist in Russia today?
  • What are you allowed to report about the election – and are certain topics no go?

Introductory speakers:
Valentin Bianki, independent political analyst, Russia, 
Anders Mård, correspondent,  Yle (Finnish Broadcasting Company), Finland, 
Anna-Lena Laurén, Dagens Nyheter (tbc), Sweden,
 Russian experts, politicians and journalists.

The seminar includes lectures, visit to newsrooms and authorities, and individual time for those who want to do some reporting during the seminar.
