Since 2016, Russia and Eastern Europe have been thrust back into the American spotlight. You could have pundits who have never been to the region and don’t speak any of its languages interpret the situation for you…or you could have me.

This is a complex and nuanced place. I’ve studied there. I’ve lived there. I’ve worked there. My grandfather was born there and exiled from there. I’m tired of the paranoid, overblown, pants-on-fire rhetoric that has categorized the Western coverage of the region over the past few years. I promise not to BS you about what’s going on or why it matters (and I have an extensive portfolio that backs that statement up). For a one-time fee, you’ll get me in your inbox (and my undying gratitude).

I love to discuss these issues; let’s do it on a much more refined medium than one replete with bots and trolls!
