As a journalist I was lucky to work for the less dependent editorials in Russia: as a producer in the Snob
Media project, TVRain
and Kommersant TV
, being in charge of the whole creative and technical process for several programs that went on air.
I currently live in Budapest and teach journalism at the UNIC Institute of Culture
via webinars to young students all over Russia: from Sakhalin and Vladivostok to Sochi and Kaliningrad.
Three years ago I was fortunate to join the team of Individuum
publishing house. Since then I have been in charge of finding new authors for nonfiction books focusing on Russia's most serious problems: human rights, politics, economics, healthcare and more. The book I co-wrote about the life and work of Russia's only disabled TV-star became a bestseller
In recent years covering Russia's alarming domestic issues as well as Hungary's has been very important for me: there are new laws about the so-called 'undesirable organisations
', 'foreign agents
', LGBT propaganda
, about HIV and Hepatitis
epidemics, Lex CEU
