Project Report | May 8, 2023
Twice foreign agents in Russia

By Pisemskiy Evgeny | Chief Editor

On February 8, our website was blocked throughout the Russian Federation. As a result of the ban, we’ve lost about half of our visitors. Now, instead of 5 million, the website is visited by about 2.5 million people.

 

The website has been recognised as a foreign agent for the second time. Our organization, named Phoenix PLUS, was first recognized as a “foreign agent” at the end of 2020. On March 23, 2023, the Ministry of Justice of Russia entered the Parni PLUS website into the register of “foreign agents” for the second time.

 

We see all the sanctions imposed on us as an indicator of our work.

 

Our current publishing priorities are:

 

  • Anti-war movement support
  • Psychological health of LGBT people
  • Supporting LGBT action groups and initiatives that operate in Russia
  • Legal information for LGBT people
  • Covering the situation with the adoption of new legislation on propaganda
  • Denouncing hate speeches from politicians and propagandists



However, we were ready for the ban, and thanks to our technical specialist, we’ve learned how to bypass the blocking. Now, people can still visit our website in Russia even without a VPN

We are also developing our Telegram channel, which already has 13,000 subscribers.

Thanks to your support, we continue our work, day by day. 

 

We keep on working. Thanks to your support, our news specialist continues to work. Over the period, we have posted 154 publications on the site. As of the time of this report, the site's publications have been viewed by  865,000 unique visitors.
