The journalists start their research after participating in a seminar at Fojo in Kalmar in Sweden, where they were trained in research methods and media law. Trainers were Galina Arapova (media law), Alexander Gorshkov and Oleg Khomenok (investigative methods) and Britt-Marie Citron (exampel of a Swedish investigation for a small local newspaper).
