We are looking for volunteers who can help us answering burning questions about the context of the Russian regime (e.g. “Why do people decide to leave Russia?”, “Is there an anti-war movement in Russia?”) based on data that we collect and own additional research.

What you will do:

  • Read and analyse the answers.
  • Summarise the answers:
    • Give the overall picture (using available graphs and cloud words).
    • Provide the specific examples of the answers to illustrate the picture.
  • Provide relevant content to give the context (e.g. YouTube, magazines, etc.).
  • Work closely with our editorial team (no tight deadlines).
  • Use Google Drive, Telegram chat, and Trello to work and communicate.

What does it take?

  • 4-5 hours per week to work on a project.
  • To be available at least once per week (most probably, on Sunday) for an 1 hour call.

What do you get?

  • Experience of working in a team of like-minded people.
  • Experience of writing and publishing research-based texts (with a possibility of doing it either anonymously or not based on your own preference), supported by feedback to help you improve your writing.
  • Experience of working in an NGO.

Our stand on the Russian war with Ukraine

Russia started the war against Ukraine. This war is happening from 2014. It has only intensified on February 24th 2022. Milions of Ukrainians are suffering. The perpetrators of this must be brought to justice for their crimes.

Russian regime tries to silence its liberal voices. Russian people against the war exist - and the Russian regime tries its best to silence them. We want to prevent that and make their voices heard.

Connection is crucial. The Russian liberal initiatives are hard to read for European public at times. The legal, social and historical context of Russia is not always clear. We want to share information, build bridges and connect the liberal Russia with The West.

We believe in dialogue, not isolation. The oppositional powers in Russia will not be able to change anything without the support of the democratic world. We also believe that the dialogue should go both ways.

The choice is yours. We understand the anger for the Russian crimes. It is up to you whether you want to listen to the Russian people standing against this.
