In January, RFE/RL’s Russian service collaborated with its Central Newsroom to publish a dramatic multimedia project, “Sochi 2014: Outside the Arena” that looked at the environmental, social and human costs associated with the Sochi Winter Games.
In June, RFE/RL’s Moldovan Service partnered with public Radio Moldova to debut a new, monthly Russian-language roundtable show to counter Russian propaganda. Another program, The Weekend With Europa Libera, is also being broadcast twice each week by Moldovan Public Radio, once in Romanian, once in Russian. In November, RFE/RL launched a daily, 10-minute television program, Clear and Simple
(Pur si Simplu), in Romanian and in Russian.
In April, the Georgian Service (Radio Tavisupleba) expanded its programming from eight to 18 hours daily on longtime FM affiliate Radio Green Wave. Content for the expanded stream is produced by RFE/RL’s Georgian, Russian, Armenian, and Azerbaijani Services, as well as VOA’s Georgian, Special English and Music Mix services.
