Online journal «7x7» raised 840 thousand rubles to pay a fine from Roskomnadzor. The amount was collected within 24 hours after the decision of Syktyvkar city court. The editorial thanks everyone who donated and launches a crowdaming campaign: we suggest to issue a monthly payment to support the work of «7x7».
Where regular payments will go
The editorial board will send funds to fees to correspondents, photographers and videographers. We want to make more good materials about life and important events in the province, write about human rights, social problems and the political situation. Just how we did this in the material about the families of those arrested in the Network case in Penza and St. Petersburg, in the investigation of the accident at the Severnaya mine or the report from the small northern town of Inta, where the last coal mine was closed.
How the fundraising campaign ended
On the morning of September 1, 846310 rubles were transferred to the account, which were sent by 236 payments. We can not say for sure, but most likely, more than half the amount was transferred by one person, who made a series of large anonymous payments. Thank you!
Payment in the equivalent of 2400 rubles was made in bitcoins
