researcher in Moscow, Russia
I am currently an Expert in the Foreign Policy and Security division at the Center for Strategic Research, a Moscow-based think-tank on a mission to develop a long-term development strategy for Russia.
As an aspiring scholar, I research Russian foreign policy, Southeast Asian politics and particularly Vietnam. Passionate about communications, political philosophy, soft power and media.
I write on these and other issues for Russian and internarional media outlets from the Wall Street Journal to The Diplomat and tweet at @antsvetov.
My other passion is making and listening to the best music there is - blues and classic rock.
