eXile Returns Online After Paper’s Closure

Published: July 18, 2008 (Issue # 1391)


The defunct alternative Moscow biweekly The eXile has launched a new web site, a month after its investors withdrew funding following a government inspection of its editorial content.

The new site, http://exiledonline.com, went up Monday and appears to be maintaining an editorial line similar to the newspaper and its old site. Editor and founder Mark Ames said in a message on the site that the main journalists would continue to write for the site, which will now focus more on the United States.

But co-editor Yasha Levine, the only eXile editor who will remain in Moscow, said Russia would still figure in the new project.

“We’ve basically gone global,” Levine said by telephone Wednesday.

“But as long as I can hold out here, Russia is going to be a main focus.”
