archive.syg.ma is an experiment in reconfiguring and preserving Russian online publications and initiatives. The initial list of resources was collected through an open call announced by the syg.ma team in March 2022 as a response to Russia’s unpredictable internet regulation, censorship, and sanctions. We would like to thank Webrecorder for providing us with tools that allowed us to archive websites and the Goethe Institute for making this project possible.
