Paul Sonne The Washington Post
Sonne is a national security reporter for The Washington Post, where he focuses on Russia and Europe. He previously covered the U.S. military and wrote about defense policy at the Pentagon. He joined The Post’s national desk in 2018 after nearly nine years as a correspondent for the Wall Street Journal in Moscow, London, and Washington, most recently covering national security from the D.C. bureau.
Sonne started his career as an intern at the New York Times and Associated Press bureaus in Moscow before joining the Journal in London, covering business and political news. He returned to Russia to serve as a Moscow correspondent for the Journal from 2013 to 2016, covering the Kremlin as relations between Washington and Moscow soured. He also reported from Kyiv’s Maidan during Ukraine’s pro-Europe uprising and made an early departure from the Sochi Olympics to chronicle Russia’s surprise annexation of Crimea. Sonne later reported on the war in eastern Ukraine from both sides of the front and led the Journal’s coverage of the 2014 shoot-down of a Malaysia Airlines plane from the crash site outside Donetsk in eastern Ukraine.
He is fluent in Russian. Unsurprisingly, he believes “The Americans” is the best show on television. The only thing he enjoys watching more is Vladimir Putin’s annual call-in show.
