Kremlin Assault on Democracy in 21 Nations Detailed

Russia's far-ranging intrusions to undermine democracy in Europe and the United States are detailed in a new report by Democratic Party staffers of the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. This disturbingly detailed 206-page report on Russian interference relies heavily on investigative reporting by independent media, including GIJN members OCCRP, Re:Baltica and ProPublica. The report describes Kremlin use of state foundations, NGOs, think tanks, political extremists, the Russian Orthodox Church, the energy industry, organized crime and corruption.

re:Baltica Investigates Latvia Health System

The Baltic Centre for Investigative Journalism has released a new project looking at major health care reform in Latvia. While officials say the changes will be fairer to taxpayers, fight the grey economy and bring more money into healthcare, doctors and others argue the changes will not make people healthier and leave 100,000 uninsured.
