Event organizers : Yaroslavl branch " Assembly of the Peoples of Russia" , " Union of Journalists of the Yaroslavl region " and " Regional Jewish National and Cultural Autonomy of the Yaroslavl region ." Leader - Margarita Arvitovna Lange , president of the Guild Interethnic journalism.

The seminar program consisted of information on ethnicity and ethnic themes in the post-Soviet Russian media , ethical concerns lighting ethnic themes in the media, metropolitan journalist spoke about lessons learned and monitoring on this topic.

Gathered to listen , NGO representatives , journalists and students .

Margarita Arvitovna said that in Soviet times multiethnic country has not experienced any problems in covering such topics in the media. First of all , the social policy of the state was aimed at the relationship between culture and friendship among nations , preserving the identity of each ethnic group .

The Soviet people , starting from school, learning about the culture and customs of other nations. This was aided by the state education system , non-formal education. Began still at school , in the pioneer camps . Worked kidy ( Clubs International Friendship ) in schools or clubs as in the Houses of the pioneers , it was fashionable to correspond with their peers from countries. The next step - is a service in the Soviet army , when there was "mixing" - the guys were far from the place of birth , sometimes remained at duty or taken away from there with a bride , there were mixed marriages . Then another area - study in universities : usually observed at admission quotas for representatives of the republics , almost all students living in dormitories . So , in his younger years , to build relationship with other nations. Then she worked distribution system of young professionals. Add another construction crew , Komsomol construction , etc. At the national film studio created wonderful movies national directors in their own language and in Russian . They watched the entire country . Cultural works translated into the languages ??of the peoples of the USSR. And there were in each library .

With the collapse of the USSR system neighborliness distorted in favor of liberal values ??. Instead, it created nothing positive in this direction. Ideological emptiness became involved in nationalist moments. Although Imperial Russia and then the Soviet Union in its relations with other nations in its composition was treated as a part of their country, have invested huge sums of money in the development of human resources were directed there . Over the past quarter century , much has changed for the worse in this regard.

First of all, a bargaining chip loyalty Western and American political and financial circles was the theme of the blackening of everything connected with the word " Russian ". Such hysteria led to what became squeezed rights of the majority in favor of small nations . Skewed violated ethnic balance. Incidentally, it is a transnational "card" was played in the Ukraine and was the catalyst for the current events .

uring this time, the media have undergone reformatting were private or public . And the theme was operated in anyones commercial and political interests. Increased generation of people who poorly manages what people live nearby.

Financial pressure on the media capital led to that rare journalist who can express citizenship undistorted. As a journalist became an employee , depending on the views of the owners of the media. And the media have turned into an instrument of control .

According to Lange , the actual number of subjects passed periods . In the period since 1991. - 1995, there was euphoria (use old resources , the creation of ethnic media , mass media ignored the national question ) . From 1995 to 2005 - the apocalypse of capitalism (devastation etnoizdany for mass media becomes marginal ethnic theme ) from 2005 to 2011. - Dismantling "friendship of peoples " (fear of power, virtual separatism ) . And with 2011. - Present time period observed awareness ( scapegoating the media , firs and incitement ) .

Margarita Arvitovna believes that the interests of journalists are still many important ethnic topics because the media in their own understanding " requests " of society . Appear information about "wild" Migrants of the mysterious features Ethnicities ( shamans , etc.) crimes " natsmenov " and Russian activists " fascists ", etc.

In fact, all these have become boring "yellow" news, candid manipulation. Society needs professional journalism , which analyzes , educates and raises the readers knowledge and not down to his baser needs for 30 pieces of silver from the advertiser , performs , in fact, educational and informational mission. It is in this perspective, journalism can act as a guarantor of social stability. Ignoring this issue leads to lay the "Mines" destabilizing society deferred action.

And yet there is a theme - countrymen , which also need truthful information. Therefore an urgent need to create newsworthy understanding professional mission.

Lyagne proposed an indicative list of topics that should be pursued : positive life practices close , ethnic and cultural objects , ethnic aspects of the business , interethnic marriages , regional ethno-politics , ethnic gangs , ethnicity and health, etnobrendirovanie region, etc. Field for the application of creative effort - virgin soil untilled . The main thing is not to gloss over the topic , not distort , and to solve problems , to voice them .

Seminar aroused discussion among participants , who gave examples of civic regional journalists asked pointed questions . Margarita Alexandrovna colleagues introduced the Code of Ethics of journalists covering ethnic themes in the Russian Federation . Invited to participate in the work of " SMIrotvorets " and read the works of the winners of the contest , which she believes can become role models in applying the theme .

Head of the regional organization of journalists Irina Puchta proposed to create a section in association professionals on this urgent topic. This supported her head YARO " Assembly of the Peoples of Russia" Nour El Abdulovich Hasiev .

Our country - a real gem of a multinational . We are rich in resources , but it seems that somehow poorer personal. Us journalists have something to talk seriously . But the question arises: Which media sites to do it, what if the owner of the media sees edition only source of income rather than a carriage some mission? It is possible that such seminars is advantageously carried out with editors and media owners who today dictate its will to the journalist . Well, if a journalist is a proper understanding of their professional duties , then the expression still remains online and associates .
