Vitali Vitaliev

The first investigative journalist in the old Soviet Union, Vitali Vitaliev was forced to defect from the USSR in January 1990 – the result of his ground-breaking and courageous investigations for Krokodil magazine into Soviet organised crime, neo-fascism, political prisoners and the persecution of dissidents.

A regular media commentator on current political and social issues, Vitali now works as Features Editor of E&T magazine and is an accomplished and popular public speaker.

Testimonials

“Vitali Vitaliev is a star in the making.”

– Time Magazine

“Vitaliev has an irrepressible sense of humour”

– The Guardian

With the charm of Michael Palin and the wit of Clive Anderson, this man is adorable.

– Time Out

“Vitaliev has a sharp and sardonic eye, and his observations are informed by his humanity and compassion… He is an engaging fellow and his books put you at his companionable elbow.”

– Daily Telegraph

“Vitaliev is a genial companion. His tone is immensely likeable. He relishes his successes without arrogance and suffers disappointment without self-pity. He is a genuinely comic writer – not a sabre-toothed satirist, despite the Krokodil years, but friendly and slightly melancholy.”

– The Independent

“An ironic and witty commentator on life, Vitaliev writes with a humanist’s appetite for social oddity. There is a great charm in his emotional roller-coasting.”

– The Spectator

“Vitaliev writes with vitality and humour.”

– Sunday Times

Vitaliev is erudite, humorous and a joy to be with.

– Daily Mail
