Turkmen Radio - Inside View

Turkmen radio - Inside View is an IWPR radio training and broadcast project for Turkmenistan, aimed at reducing the information blockade imposed by the current regime in the country. The material produced by Turkmen journalists is available on this website as soundfiles (in the Turkmen language) with accompanying texts in Turkmen, Russian and English. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's Turkmen Service is using the Inside View stories in its broadcasts beamed into Turkmenistan.

PLEASE NOTE: The IWPR Turkmen Radio Project formally ended in January 2007. Project material will remain on the IWPR website as an archive in three languages.
