Russian blog on free newspapers

Svetlana Maximchenko, editor of the free Russian paper Akzia (see previous post) started in February of this year a blog about free papers in Russia: freenewspapers.ru.

She wrote about the launch of the Russian Metro, about the Moi Rayon papers by Schibsted (the publisher pulled back from Moscow), about the free paper F5 and about free content in general.

I don’t read Russian but Google Translate helped me out in this case. (Even smarter: copy the RSS-feed from the page, subscribe to it in Google Reader and change feed settings to: ‘translate to my language’ – updates will appear in English or any other language of choice.)
