The Kyrgyz journalism is dominated by news journalism, although there are many opportunities for the development of analytical, investigative and other genres of journalism.

Oleg Khomenok, media expert, coordinator of the SCOOP journalistic investigation support project in Ukraine, has repeatedly visited Kyrgyzstan, where he conducted trainings for local journalists to practice investigative journalism.

«Journalistic investigations educate the country authorities to culture of accountability. Today, people need more than just news.  So, sooner or later people will start to think about where their paid money for taxes go, how the government effectively rule the country; therefore, people need media coverage of those processes, answers to questions and many other information that only the media can give», — Oleg Khomenok.
