Barents Press is a network for Finnish, Norwegian,Swedish and Russian journalists in the Barents Region, and counts as one of Europe's most successful journalistic network across country borders.
It is unique in many way; mostly because of its vast geographic coverage which includes many societies and native populations.
The initiative to the foundation of the BP association was officially taken at the Barents ministerial in Kirkenes, January 1993. At this time, there was a kind of euphoria in which everything seemed possible. Soon, especially the Norwegians were eager to create connections towards northwestern Russia; Murmansk and Arkhangelsk.
