Here’s our tiny but mighty Meduza in English team!

For security reasons, we can’t show our Russian editorial team anymore

Dear readers!

The Russian authorities have designated Meduza as a “foreign agent,” blocked our website, shattered our crowdfunding inside Russia, and banished our journalists. Even now, they threaten to lock up our reporters. Despite all this, Meduza remains Russia’s biggest independent news source with millions of readers across the country.

Our app can circumvent Russian censorship. Our freelance correspondents continue to report from on the ground using guerilla tactics. The state’s pressure and threats haven’t intimidated a single journalist at Meduza.

It seemed impossible, but we’ve done it. And throughout it all, we’ve told the truth about the war. This honesty is precisely why the Russian authorities outlawed Meduza in January 2023. Our readers and anyone involved in our reporting can be imprisoned for things as basic as granting us an interview or simply posting hyperlinks to our articles. Of course, the most severe punishment is reserved for those who support Meduza financially.

That’s why your support — the support of Meduza’s global audience — is now essential. We need your participation to keep doing our jobs. Meduza’s devoted professionals are in the field and at their desks every day, working for the future of a free Russia and a strong, independent Ukraine.

The Kremlin wants to destroy Meduza. It’s failed many times, and it will fail again. So long as we have friends, we’re not going anywhere. And our readers are the friends we need now.

Thousands of people already support Meduza financially. Join them today.


К сожалению, из-за «нежелательного» статуса мы больше не принимаем пожертвования от людей, живущих в России. Но даже если вы там, вы все равно можете нам помочь. Здесь описаны все способы, как можно это сделать. Нам очень нужна ваша поддержка. Давайте не бояться вместе 🖤

Unfortunately, due to our «undesirable» status, we can no longer accept donations from people who live in Russia. But that doesn’t mean you can’t support us if you’re there. Here we’ve listed all of the ways people can help us from inside the country. We urgently need your support. Together, let’s not be afraid 🖤
