Since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014 X Soviet has been covering the news from Russia and Ukraine in various formats, including articles, videos and tweets. Currently we have a project covering Alexei Navalny's campaign against Vladimir Putin - Navalny is banned from the Russian election but he continues to insist that he should be allowed to participate and to campaign. The website can be seen here: https://navalnyvsputin.com/. More articles can be seen here: http://xsovietunion.blogspot.co.uk/.

X Soviet was founded by Sarah Hurst, a journalist who has been writing about Russia since her first visit to the Soviet Union in 1990. She has worked as a freelancer and for BBC Monitoring and Reuters. 

X Soviet has been an entirely voluntary project and all donations go directly to founder and lead author Sarah Hurst to continue writing and producing videos.

Former Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves says of X Soviet: “X Soviet is one of the most informative and current sources of information on the Russian information war and its attack on liberal democracy.”
