In Moldova, Russian speakers often read and follow news coming from biased sources that are spreading misinformation. Balanced information on Moldova for local, foreign and Russian language readers is not easily available online.
In response to this, Diez.MD (#Diez), a leading youth-led online portal, intends to enhance the access for Russian speaking youth in Moldova to independent media. #Diez will develop a Russian language department that will create relevant and appealing media content on culture, lifestyle and social issues, in addition to political analysis and news geared for Russian-speaking youth readers.
