• Project: Emergency support editorial board The Moscow Times – EUR 50.000 (12 March 2022)

  • Project: The Moscow Times archive - EUR 11,955 (30 November 2022)

Potamos Foundation owns The Moscow Times, an independent English- and Russian online newspaper. The English newspaper was published on paper in Russia from 1992 to 2017 and was both distributed for free and sold as a subscription. The newspaper was popular among foreign citizens living in Moscow and English-speaking Russians. The newspaper became online-only in July 2017 and launched its Russian service in 2020.

The money covered the travel and accommodation costs of editors of The Moscow Times, who have been unable to carry out their journalistic work in Russia since the start of the war in Ukraine, to continue their work in The Netherlands.

Until 2022 the archive of The Moscow Times containing all articles written between 1992 and 2016 was digitally not available to readers. This budget makes this archive accessible through, among other things, a comprehensive search function and an archive landing page. With the contribution of De Boomgaard, this unique archive of The Moscow Times can be made accessible to all readers of the site.
