A conversation with:
Ms. Galina Timchenko
Mr. Ivan Kolpakov
Ms. Melinda Haring
Headquartered in Riga, Latvia, Meduza.io is one of the world’s largest independent Russian-language media outlets. Galina Timchenko, who leads the publication, is the former editor-in-chief of Russian news website Lenta.ru — one of the most popular outlets in Runet at the time of her dismissal in spring of 2014. Meduza is run by a team of Russian journalists who resigned from their jobs at Lenta.ru following Timchenko’s unexpected removal from her post by the website’s owner and Vladimir Putin ally, the oligarch Alexander Mamut.
