Majority of the journalists said that taking part in the seminar brought them valuable experience, which structuralized their present skills and helped to get to know more about methods and practical skills of carrying out journalism investigation. According to Elena Miakshina, the editor of Sozvezdie Review magazine, the seminar showed the possibility of carrying out scaled investigations involving readers.

Other participants found out interesting examples of carrying out investigations concerning everyday life of people. As an example, Ekaterina Kurzeneva gives the following conclusion:

– I understood that not all investigations are to be global or risky (it is necessary for the journalist to posses juridical skills, we have also talked about it on the seminar). Great number of topics is laying on the surface, our life gives them to us. The work of the journalist is not to pass by.

– The seminar in Arkhangelsk may turn to be a part of big project for improving Russian journalists investigative methods, said Henrik Kaufholtz.

– This must be two or three year studying programme. The main aim is to help Russian journalists to become an integral part of the international journalism investigative network, the important part of the media work.

Most of participants wish to hold such seminars more often and invite Russian trainers  and lawyers.
