I’m a Senior Research Scientist at CNA Corporation and a Fellow at the Wilson Center, Kennan Institute.  Wilson Center is a non-profit organization, in part funded by Congress. CNA is a FFRDC, where I conduct research and write on the Russian military. I’m also a non-resident fellow at the Modern Warfare Institute for a one year term.

The purpose of this blog is to contribute to the field Russian military analysis, and be a sister blog to that run by my colleague Dmitry Gorenburg titled ‘Russian Military Reform. The content is based entirely my opinion (caveat emptor), without any connection to my professional affiliations.
