Media systems of post-Soviet countries: the comparative study

Student: Alexey Mitrov

Supervisor: Ilya Kiriya

Faculty: Faculty of Communications, Media, and Design

Educational Programme: Media Communications (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 9

Year of Graduation: 2021

All the regimes in power now in the post-Soviet countries take their origin from a common political ancestor, which is the Soviet Union. For this reason, it is reasonable to consider that multiple features of those regimes can be remarkably similar, including interaction with the media systems of their countries. Moreover, as the Soviet Union collapsed just 30 years ago, it can be assumed that its heritage still has a tremendous impact on the social and political reality in the countries under consideration. Consequently, a comparative analysis of the media systems in the post-Soviet republics equalizing those ones both with the Soviet media system and among each other will be of interest.
