About Us

The Vostokian was founded in 2015 as a forum on which students and young professionals could publish their writings on politics and economics in Eastern Europe and the Balkans. It is completely self-funded by our editorial staff. The Vostokian was the first to cover the Political Bomb crisis in Macedonia and has provided the most comprehensive timeline of sanctions leveled on and by Russia. Work published on our site has also been recommended as reading by the Foreign Policy Association, cited by the Soufan Group and discussed on talk radio.
