Moscow-based Irina Borogan began her journalism career in 1996 as a correspondent at Russia's Segodnya newspaper, where she covered subjects ranging from the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia to the refugee crisis before the Second Chechen War. In 2000, she reported about crime and law enforcement agencies for Izvestia, and with Andrei Soldatov (also a Project Klebnikov member), she co-founded Agentura.Ru, an information hub on Russian intelligence services. From 2002-2004, Borogan was a correspondent at the weekly newspaper Versiya, where she covered the Moscow theatre crisis and was interrogated twice by FSB officers on the subject. She next worked at Moscow News, where she covered the Beslan siege, before joining Novaya Gazeta from 2006-2008. Borogan is co-author with Soldatov of three books, including "The Red Web: The Struggle Between Russia's Digital Dictators and the New Online Revolutionaries," in 2015, and "The Compatriots: The Brutal and Chaotic History of Russia's Exiles, Èmigrès, and Agents Abroad," in 2019.
