SUPPORTING INDEPENDENT MEDIA
IN THE EASTERN PARTNERSHIP AND BEYOND
CREATIVE CONTENT SUPPORT FUND
- In many of the territories the Content Fund supports, independent media is in dire straits, silenced by repressive measures and crowded out by media operators loyal to autocrats. All this takes place against the background of the mass production of Kremlin-aligned disinformation.
- To compensate for this, the Content Fund provides funding for Russian-language content creation, acquisition, marketing, distribution and capacity building.
- By building a relationship with audiences based on truth and trust, the Content Fund can reach vulnerable and captured audiences and provide an effective response to the disinformation problem.
