I regularly create new resources to help people understand security threats in Russia and Eurasia. Come back to this page regularly to see what’s new. Or just sign up to the newsletter to receive the insights direct to your inbox!


Each week, I publish an in-depth profile of an important security actor in Russia and Eurasia, explaining their role and relevance to the contemporary security landscape. The aim of these Profiles is to provide a comprehensive, reliable, and verified account of what is known about a given actor in Russian and English, and a clear picture of why they matter today. Each profile takes 15-20 hours to produce, saving you that time when you need to research these actors. You can sign up here to receive the Profiles. You can find the profiles of actors who have already been covered here.


Between January and October 2023, I released a weekly newsletter providing a round-up of news related to terrorism and insurgency, private military companies, and substate-security services in Russia and Eurasia. The archive is accessible here.
