Ukrainian freelance journalist Roman Stepanovych became one of the prize winners of the Peabody Awards with the project ‘Inside Putin's Russia’. He wrote about this on his Facebook page.

According to a report on the Peabody Awards website, the creators of the Inside Putin's Russia program spent seven weeks in Russia.

“Special correspondent Nick Schifrin and producer Zach Fannin spent seven weeks in Russia, traveling to more than 12 cities to provide viewers context for thinking about President Vladimir Putin’s global impact. In addition to background on how this KGB veteran rose to power, we learn how he has shaped public opinion through appeals to nationalism and manufacturing consent via “fake news.” the message says.

"Each segment takes us deeper into understanding the mechanisms of power Putin has at his disposal," says the program announcement.

Note, the Peabody Awards program was named in honor of American businessman George Peabody. The award is given to the most powerful, enlightening and inspiring stories on Tv, radio and in online media.

As it was reported earlier, Maxim Borodin, an investigative journalist for the local newspaper Novy Den (New Day), died in the intensive care unit of one of the hospitals in Yekaterinburg after falling from a height. This man was first who declared the death of the soldiers of the so-called Wagner Group in Syria, whose activities were also seen in eastern Ukraine. Although the investigators have not yet specified the exact cause of his death, some friends and colleagues of Borodin believe that the fall from height was not a suicide or an accident. He became the 159th murdered journalist in Russia during Putin's rule.

Reports of the tragic incident that happened to journalist Maxim Borodin appeared last Thursday, April 12. The editorial office of New Day, where he worked recently, noted that he fell from the height of the fifth floor "under circumstances not yet clear".
