World Association of Russian Press (WARP) is an open international non-governmental organization for printed and electronic media, agencies, publishers, editors, TV and radio programs, as well as other legal publishers and distributors of all types of media in Russian. WARP is the only worldwide association of Russian journalists and publishers.
Association was established in 1999 at the First World Congress of Russian Press, where its primary goal was proclaimed to create and develop a unified global Russian-speaking space, ensuring the rights of compatriots abroad to access information and communicate in Russian. Today, the Russian language media exists in various formats in more than 80 countries. A large part of them is presented in the WARP, or currently cooperate with it.
