Vienna: A Spies’ Paradise. A Conversation with Christo Grozev

Christo Grozev
Christo Grozev is an award-winning Bulgarian journalist, a lead investigator for The Insider and member of Bellingcat Productions, which looks to translate Bellingcat investigations into a range of new media products. Until  February  2023 he was the lead Russia investigator with Bellingcat, focusing on security threats, extraterritorial clandestine operations, and the weaponization of information. His investigations into the identity of the suspects involved in the 2018 poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal earned him and his team the European Press Prize for Investigative Journalism. He has authored further investigations identifying, among others, two senior Russian officers linked to the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in 2014; the GRU officers involved with the 2016 Montenegrin coup plot, and the FSB operative involved in the poisoning of Alexei Navalny in 2020.
