New East network

Biography

The New East network is a collaboration between the Guardian and a series of specialist sites writing from and about the 15 countries that used to be part of the Soviet Union. Together with the partners the network hopes to expand the conversation about the region that they call the New East, and move beyond the polarised debate of East vs. West. It features articles from the partners as well as the Guardian’s correspondents, commissions exclusive pieces from regional experts and republishes interesting work from around the web — often translating local languages into English as well as some of its work into Russian.
