Express Khronika is a weekly newspaper that reports on human rights issues and democratic movements. It started in 1987 after being circulated for years as samizdat. Its editor-in-chief is a well-known human rights activist who served more than eight years in prison for work that included the 1978 publication of Punitive Medicine, a book which documented Soviet psychiatric abuses.

Express Khronika utilizes a network of correspondents throughout Russia and the NIS. In addition to its weekly newspaper, it also publishes a daily wire service, which is available via fax or e-mail, and periodic special reports, including a year-end summary of the human rights situation in Russia.
