The Arrest of Evan Gershkovich: Covering Russia at War, With New York Times Moscow Bureau Chief Anton Troianovski

April 24 @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

The Medill School of Journalism, Media and Integrated Marketing Communications and the Northwestern Roberta Buffett Institute for Global Affairs are co-hosting a conversation with Anton Troianovski, Moscow Bureau Chief for The New York Times. This event is free and open to the public. Anton arrived in Moscow in January 2018 as bureau chief for The Washington Post and joined The Times the following year. He has reported on politics, war, culture and the environment across the post-Soviet space, from Ukraine and Azerbaijan to the Arctic and the disputed Kuril Islands in the Pacific. His article on the thawing permafrost of Siberia was part of The Washington Post series that won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting. Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, he has led The Times’s coverage of Russia while based in Istanbul and Berlin.

Before coming to Moscow, Anton spent nine years at The Wall Street Journal, covering real estate and telecommunications in New York and then moving to Berlin as a Germany correspondent. He began his journalism career as a freelance photographer for the Webster-Kirkwood Times and The Suburban Journals in Missouri. He was born in Moscow and grew up in Heidelberg, Germany and in St. Louis. He holds a bachelor’s degree in social studies from Harvard University.

The conversation will focus on the topic of Anton Troianovski’s recent article in The New York Times about Evan Gershkovich, a Wall Street Journal reporter who was arrested in Russia last month on accusations of espionage—a claim The Journal, the U.S. government and press advocacy groups have rejected.
