The St. Petersburg Times, a weekly English language newspaper founded in Russia’s second city in 1993, has stopped producing its print edition. To staunch the flow of red ink, the owner of the paper (Independent Media) decided to cut back to an online version only. The publication’s sister paper, The Moscow Times, founded in 1992, continues to come out in print.
Meanwhile Meduza, a news website staffed by the exiled team of Lenta.Ru (a popular publication that was ordered to change its editorial policy in March 2014 because of its coverage of the Ukraine crisis), has launched an English version. “You’ll find the stories most vital to understanding what’s really going on in Russia,” Meduza claimed in its announcement of the launch.
