Framing Russian Orthodox Church: How Russian State-owned Media Covered the Church/Religion


  • Galina V. LUKYANOVA

    () (St. Petersburg State University)


Media scholars agree that much of what the public knows about news, politics and even religion is obtained through mediated sources. Today the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) is officially separated from the State but is increasingly involving in social, cultural and political life of Russian society not only directly, but also by using media. The paper focuses on media coverage of the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) in news programs of state-owned media “Perviikanal” and “Rossia” (2014-2015) and examines the interaction of the Russian Orthodox Church and the State through media.
