Progress This Month
What is Russia Insider?
What's happened is a minor miracle.
We are a movement:
- Over 5,000 regular folks who are fed up with the appalling, war-mongering, anti-Russian bias of the neocon US and EU media, trusted us with a modest sum, so far amounting to about $250,000.
- With it we built an information SLEDGEHAMMER and knocked a gaping hole in their narrative.
This might be a world record in cost vs. benefit.
- We have a rapidly growing fallowing, well into the hundreds of thousands, who rely on our site daily.
How did we do it?
Grit, Sweat, and Tears.
Hundreds of people gave their time and passion and worked for free, or subsistence wages (and still do), to get the word out.
We are reaching A LOT of people.
EVERY MONTH about 4 million people visit us across our combined platforms (see our stats below)
We have done all this on a shoestring budget.
We are widely picked up by other sites, meaning millions more read our articles every month.
