In early 2015, the news, analysis, society, political and business newspaper “Ulitsa Moskovskaya” published in Penza by “Valentin Manuylov” publishing house has won a grant of 700,000 rubles from “Sreda.”
In addition, the grant-receiving editorials were said to be eligible to receive the support in the similar amount from the foundation during the next two years.
In summer 2015, the “Sreda” foundation board decided to disband their organization after it was included in the list of foreign agents.
The Russian mass media support foundation “Sreda” was founded by a businessman Boris Zimin in 2014, and funded by his father Dmitry Zimin, founder of the “Dynasty” foundation – another organization that was disbanded after being recognized as a foreign agent.
