Today, Fergana’s editorial office in Moscow employs more than 20 people. We work with dozens of journalists, photographers, activists and freelancers in Russia, Uzbekistan and all over Central Asia. We painstakingly verify facts gathered from a variety of sources, both official and unofficial. In the twenty years in which Fergana has been active, we have earned the very highest level of trust from our readers.
