"We are happy to share our experience with young journalists from different countries and hope they will be able to make good use of what they learn in their work," Anton Anisimov, head of Sputnik International Broadcasting, said.
Journalists from 20 countries and various media outlets, including news agencies SANA (Syria), Opera Mundi (Brazil), Telam (Argentina), and Antara (Indonesia), newspapers Global Times (China) and L’Economiste (Morocco), and Radio24syv (Denmark), will attend the workshops.
"It will be very interesting for me to learn about new media technology and exchange experiences with journalists from different countries," Basil Baby, executive editor of the newspaper Pravasi Express (Singapore) who is going to attend the workshops, said.
Sputnik will implement this project under the New Generation program of the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad, and International Cultural Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo).
