Prague Watchdog begins publishing Russian transcripts of RFE/RL's Chechen broadcasts
(Prague, May 22) - This past week Prague Watchdog started publishing Russian transcripts of the Chechen-language daily broadcasts aired by the North Caucasus desk of Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty (RFE/RL).
Six times a week, for 20 minutes, RFE/RL broadcasts in the Chechen language for the Chechen audience. We select the parts most related to the conflict in Chechnya and publish their Russian translations on our website (www.watchdog.cz/rferl). The transcripts are usually posted the following day.
We believe this new on-line service will be useful for both Chechen and Russian readers as well as others interested in Chechnya and the Northern Caucasus who don't understand Chechen well or not at all. We hope it will contribute to bridge the information gap about Chechnya and help to better understand regional developments.
Full-length recordings of RFE/RL's broadcasts in Chechen as well as in Avar and Circassian are available on the website of the North Caucasus desk of RFE/RL.
This project is carried out thanks to an agreement with the Prague-based North Caucasus desk of RFE/RL. The broadcasts are copyrighted by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, 1201 Connecticut Ave., NW Washington DC 20036.
