$26,900, B92 Journalist Relocation from Kosovo
In April 1999, the Milosevic government confiscated B92's radio transmitter and turned off the station's
Internet streaming software. The Foundation provided urgent relocation support to independent and B92
journalists caught in the Kosovo crisis, which enabled them to move from exile locations in Kosovo, Serbia,
and Montenegro to Amsterdam, Macedonia, Vienna, and Budapest where they were able to resume broadcasting
on the Internet.
