I am a Russian repatriate, blogger, and intelligence researcher. My primary blog is at Substack, where I write about Russia, geopolitics, psychometrics, and transhumanism.

Start here if you’re new to my work.

I also maintain pages with an archive of my best posts, travel notes (inc. guides to Moscow, SPB), and reviews of books, films, and video games. Other links:

My Russian language blog is at akarlin.ru.

Inventor of the Soviet Freezer, Apollo’s Ascent, Idiot’s Limbo, and the Katechon Hypothesis.
