Deserters and the nameless dead: Kabardino-Balkaria and the war in Ukraine

In Kabardino-Balkaria, the invasion of Ukraine has prompted mass desertion by soldiers, legal challenges by those dismissed from the armed forces, and fear in the families of those sent to the front.

Fierce, independent journalism

Let’s be honest, the media situation in the Caucasus is grim. Every day we are accused of ‘serving the enemy’ whoever that enemy may be. Our journalists have been harassed, arrested, beaten, and exiled. But nevertheless, we persevere. For us this is a labour of love. Unfortunately, we cannot run OC Media on love alone, journalism is expensive and funding is scarce. Our sole mission is to serve the interests of all peoples of the region. You can support us today for as little as $1 a month and join us in the fight for a better Caucasus.
