Reporting from Exile: A Webinar with Russian Journalist Roman Anin

Published: 24 June 2022



Russian journalist Roman Anin, the editor in chief of Important Stories (IStories), will participate in a live webinar on July 19 to share insights and answer questions about his experience investigating Russia from exile.

After exposing offshore fortunes and sweetheart deals given to allies of Vladimir Putin, Roman Anin gained a reputation as one of Russia’s top investigative journalists. But he no longer reports from his home country.

In 2021, the Kremlin launched a crackdown on independent media that led to the branding of several outlets — including IStories — as “undesirable organizations,” a designation that effectively makes it impossible to operate in Russia.

IStories is now based outside Russia, where its editors and reporters strategize carefully about how they reach key sources as well as readers in a country that has decimated press freedom.

Anin will discuss his work, including his coverage of the war in Ukraine, in a live discussion moderated by Ilya Lozovsky, a senior editor with OCCRP.

The one-hour virtual event, which will include time for the audience to ask questions, will be held on:
