Headquarters and teamEdit
NEWSru is based in Moscow, but its editorial team and location are kept secret. The network has two foreign posts: The website in Israel started in December 2005 (newsru.com.il). The Ukrainian edition was based in Kiev but discontinued in March 2017.
Chief editor Olga Leni admitted that the publication had been subsidized for the entire duration of its existence of 10 years and the site had not been able to reach self-sufficiency. Other former employees agreed, that the Russian concentrated site was closed because of a pro-Ukrainian pronouncement on the conflict in Donbass.
Besides the basic site, the NEWSru service owns a number of special interest news sites.
