I am Paul Sonne, Moscow correspondent for The Wall Street Journal. Happy to take your questions on Putin, Russia, Ukraine or anything else!
I'm a foreign correspondent based in the Moscow bureau of The Wall Street Journal (http://topics.wsj.com/person/S/paul-sonne/7264), where we cover news across the former Soviet Union. I spent much of last year covering the conflict in neighboring Ukraine and was on the ground in rebel-held territory after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down. Before moving to Moscow a year ago, I spent nearly four years as a foreign correspondent at The Wall Street Journal's bureau in London.
I'm happy to talk about whatever you want, from Vladimir Putin to more general questions about working as a journalist abroad. Or we can talk about Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, too : )
Thanks everyone for your time. I'm once again thoroughly impressed by the perceptiveness of your questions and the intelligence of Reddit's users. I have to run now, but I generally hang out in the Twitterverse at @paulsonne (https://twitter.com/PaulSonne). Hopefully we can continue the conversation there. Спасибо!
