Mapping HIV: HIV numbers are rising at a record rate in Russia and nearby countries in eastern Europe, passing an unprecedented 100,000 annual new cases. But features on this subject are dry, depressing and ignored - because no one wants to share a story on HIV. It's too miserable. Using data tools, social media and sparkling prose, how The Black Sea succeeded and failed to make HIV a headline issue in a media world resistant to tackling the drama of AIDS. http://www.theblacksea.eu/index.php?idT=88&idC=88&idRec=1192&recType=multimedia

The Ghosts of Sochi: Ghosts of Sochi is a Journalismfund.eu-supported cross-border investigation by journalists from the UK, Romania's theblacksea.eu and Novaya Gazeta in Russia. It reveals how bad oversight of subcontractors in Sochi created a climate of corruption and woeful safety practices which contributed to the deaths of hundreds of undocumented migrant workers. http://www.journalismfund.eu/ghostsofsochi

Shady deals on sports complex: The story reveals an international corruption scheme behind the planned construction of Heydar Aliyev Sports Complex in Moldova’s Gagauziya region. The governor of Gagauziya who negotiated the deal with Azerbaijan and the daughters of President Ilham Aliyev have a special interest in the project, which may not be as charitable as it looks at first glance. http://www.kyivpost.com/content/russia-and-former-soviet-union/sports-complex-stalls-in-moldovas-gagauzia-amid-shady-deals-353647.html
