Luke Harding

British author and journalist

Luke Harding is a senior international correspondent for The Guardian. He has reported from cities around the world—including Delhi, Berlin, and Moscow—and has covered wars in Iraq and Libya. In 2001, he spent three months in Pakistan and Afghanistan covering the war against the Taliban and won Foreign Story of the Year from the Foreign Press Association in 2002 for his reporting on the siege of Mazar-i-Sharif. For five years, Harding was The Guardian’s Moscow correspondent, until he was denied re-entry into Russia in 2011, after writing a piece critical of Vladimir Putin’s wealth and his connection to the assassination of the former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko. He thus became the first foreign journalist to be expelled from Russia since the end of the Cold War.
