On Sept. 11, Russia Beyond the Headlines, the international media project of Rossiyskaya Gazeta, will debut a new version of its supplement in the Washington Post with a fresh look and feel along with a new name.
After five years of appearing in the Post as Russia Now, the redesigned supplement about Russia will now appear under the project’s corporate name, Russia Beyond the Headlines.
In addition to the insight and analysis, news and commentary about Russia and the U.S.-Russia relationship that readers have come to expect from Russia Now, the new Russia Beyond the Headlines features a fresh, open design that emphasizes more space and more graphics. It also allows for longer texts that offer a deeper exploration of themes of particular interest to the Washington Post audience.
The new layout also accommodates new regular features, including a column about Russian history and the places it intersects with America’s past. This month, this section highlights the role the Russian navy played in the U.S. Civil War.
As before, the strength of the supplement is the voices from inside Russia giving U.S. readers a perspective unavailable anywhere else on issues that make the headlines – including LGBT rights, preparations for the Sochi Olympic games and international policy in Syria. The supplement will also continue to give in-depth coverage of Russian domestic political policies and social issues.
In addition to the Sept. 11 edition, the redesigned six-page broadsheet supplement will appear two more times in 2013 – Oct. 9 and Nov. 13.
