"The Time of the Barricades" in Riga in the Representation of the Soviet/Russian Media in 1991
History
(Bachelor’s programme)

2017
January events in Riga in 1991 took a notable place in the late Soviet history: in some case, they can be considered as the last large confrontation between Soviet government and Latvian national movement. During this period the glasnost’ policy played an important role: the interpretation of Riga events in mass media was a powerful tool of both policies – old Soviet propaganda and new independent perception. Baltic States, known as a “Soviet West”, were considered as something distant, unknown and calm. But this perception changed in late 80-s. This study examines the presentation of Riga events in press, which was changing during the early 90-s dramatically.
