  • Start date: 1 April 2020
  • End date: 30 September 2021

Initiative summary:

Sova News is one of the first Russian-language media outlets based in Georgia which provides balanced coverage of the country’s developments, representing an alternative to Russian state-sponsored sources. It mainly targets Georgia’s ethnic minorities as well as other Russian-speaking populations in the region, including the occupied territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. EED’s first grant allowed them to advance from an amateur initiative to a full-fledged project and to steadily increase their audience. With this new grant, Sova News will be able to develop a marketing and advertising strategy and to increase the volume of its content.
