 Bugajski News provides a chronicle of my activities as a foreign policy analyst, writer, lecturer, and media personality based in Washington DC. I provide a broad range of consulting services on key developments that have a decisive impact on foreign policy and international security.

I have authored twenty books on Europe, Russia, and trans-Atlantic relations; hosted television shows in Albania (Bugajski Hour), Montenegro (Bugajski Time), and Kosova (New Bugajski Hour), written columns for over a dozen media outlets; consulted for several governments and bussineses; and spoken at numerous international conferences. My first novel, Journeys of No Return: The Balkan Sagas of Anvil Kutlas, will form part of a trilogy based in a dramatically changing Europe.
