Monitoring today’s news in the countries of the former Soviet Union demands immediate access to a wide range of important publications. The Universal Database of CIS and Baltic Newspapers online database includes a number of authoritative periodicals, hand-selected according to the research criteria of US academic institutions. The result is content - rich in research value, without the superfluous material freely accessible on the web.
All 15 countries of the former Soviet Union are represented by 32 authoritative titles. Archives are available as far back as 1997.
A number of titles are in English: Belarus' in the World, The Messenger, AP-BLITZ. Tajikistan News, Central Asia and the Caucasus, The Times of Central Asia, and The Baltic Times.
