Science and technology documentaries

I’ve produced and presented world-class features on more than 100 international research projects, joining scientific expeditions in dozens of countries — from deserts to the Arctic, at sea, in the air and underwater. In cooperations with the European Space Agency, I’ve covered space projects in Europe, Russia and the United States.

Travel shows

In 2011, I’ve created, produced and presented Euronews’ first travel series, Life, which keeps winning sponsorship contracts across the world. In 2016, I’ve came up with a series on active and extreme tourism — Adventures — with its short and dynamic format well suited for younger travellers.

News reporting

In 2010, I became the first Euronews journalist to report from a conflict zone, providing breaking news coverage of a violent revolution in Kyrgyzstan. That trail-blazed the evolution of this international TV channel from entirely post-produced news content to its current daily reporting from around the world.

In 2015 and 2016, I’ve been covering Syria’s ongoing military and humanitarian disaster, crossing the war-ravaged country from Russia’s coastal airbase in Latakia to active frontlines in Aleppo and Palmira areas. As a news reporter, I have covered mass protests in Moscow, the Sochi Olympics and other global events, and interviewed one-on-one world’s top newsmakers, including the U.N. Secretary General and six heads of states.
