Migrants and Minorities - Anti-heroes of Russian Press PDF Print

Published: 27 February 2012

Country: Russia

russian_newspapers_smallMedia coverage of migrants, ethnic minorities and other vulnerable groups in Russia is mainly hostile and discriminatory.

'Anti-heroes’ of the Russian press are the Chechens, people from Caucasus and Muslims, while the LGBT community and its issues are covered in an unfriendly way. One of the trends in print and electronic media in Russia is “softer” hate speech, but these “soft forms” are effectively conveying discriminatory messages. These are the findings of the study conducted by the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) in four Russian regions in second half of 2013.
