Yuri Litvinenko

Regular contributor to: Tedium (English). Employed by Vedomosti (Russian) as a Web News Editor. Appearing in Atlas Obscura, Vice, and Nintendo Life.

Other information: My beats lay on the intersection of consumer technology, history, and culture. Digging through open data and archival material, I aim to give a fresh perspective on the history of common things.

I’m freelancing in parallel with working at Vedomosti, Russia’s business daily, as a web news editor. By the nature of my full-time job, I’m proficient in Russian and international current affairs, although I find particular interest in following the U.S. news cycle. (I cannot you with current affairs or business-related beats — these ones are reserved for my day-time job.)

Bachelor of translation studies and journalism, alumnus of Vyatka State University (class of 2016) and Moscow University of Humanities and Economy (class of 2019). 2+ years experience in local and trade journalism.
