Dear Russia Profile readers,
As of Wednesday, July 26, Russia Profile as a project is fully merging with the editorial team of RIA Novosti’s English-language Web site . This decision by RIA Novosti management is part of a greater rearrangement of the company’s English-language resources. From now on, Russia Profile journalists will join our colleagues at the main English desk, whose editors assume full responsibility for possible future transformations of the brand. I am also staying with RIA Novosti, with a new and interesting project to work on.
