Abstract [en]

The Eastern Partnership program was inaugurated on 7 May 2009 in Prague. The Eastern Partnership project was presented by the foreign minister of Poland with assistance from Sweden at the EU's General Affairs and External Relations Council in Brussels on 26 May 2008. Its aim is to enhance EU relationship with six former Soviet countries involved in the program: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus.

The aim of this study is to explore the tendencies of the coverage of the European Union Eastern Partnership program in Armenian and Russian media.

 The study is based on the content analysis of 144 news items sampled from four online media within the period of one year. The research is based on theories of globalization, media globalization as the Eastern Partnership is seen by the author of this thesis as a part of a broader event, than just simple regional cooperation.

The program was launched recently; and the issue of Eastern Partnership was not studied widely by scientists from the point of view of media. However, it was analyzed by different political scholars from different countries. The aim of this thesis was to fill this gap.

The results of the content analysis partly proved the hypothesis put forward. It showed that there are relations between use of sources and the mood that prevails in the article.

Author states that this study can be developed by other research methods and can serve as a good foundation for future investigations.
