comment:
"USAID media-related assistance to Russia totaled over $44 million during the June 1992-September 2002 period. Television-focused funding absorbed $22.4 million; projects focused mainly on the print media accounted for just over $7 million; and funding for the media sector as a whole was over $14.5 million. In addition to direct institutionbuilding activities, USAID provided assistance for using media for special purposes, such as holding elections and preventing domestic violence. While these two projects may have increased local media skills and capabilities, it was not their primary intention. USAID Russia's major partner in the broadcast media was Internews, which received $18.1 million. Although undertaking various activities to promote independent media in Russia, Internews's primary focus was to assist emerging, independent regional television stations. With dynamic leadership and innovative program strategies, Internews has become one of the most prominent media NGOs in the Russian Federation." (executive summary)
