M100 board member Christoph Lanz about the M100 Media Award to Natalia Sindeeva

“In the midst of an almost exclusively state-controlled media landscape, Natalia Sindeeva has created an island of freedom of expression and diversity of opinion, which for years she has defended against all opposition and threats to her very existence. To support this outstanding achievement, we would like to present her with the M100 Media Award.”
