Trumping NATO
Nick Schifrin and Zach Fannin

Donald Trump, the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee, has dismissed NATO as “very obsolete.” He’s also expressed his admiration for Vladimir Putin’s “strong” leadership style. Grantees Nick Schifrin and Zach Fannin traveled from Ukraine to Estonia to produce this timely four-part series on the faultlines between Putin’s Russia and the NATO alliance. It is journalism of the highest order. At the Pulitzer Center, we are committed to the idea that an informed citizenry is the lifeblood of a healthy democracy.

We also believe that becoming an informed citizen begins in the classroom.
