Thirty years ago Soviet citizens woke up and saw Swan Lake on TV. A putsch began in the USSR: part of the party elite removed President Mikhail Gorbachev from power. The GKChP members tried to tighten the screws and take away freedom from the media. The journalists then fought the censorship and won. In 2021, the profession of a journalist in Russia will be called prohibited: dozens of people will become “foreign agents” and will be forced to leave Russia, and many independent media will recognize them as “undesirable”.
