Full Bio of Igor Serebryany

Born in 1965 in Moscow, Russia (then Soviet Union).

Graduated Moscow State University, major – journalism, in 1987; U.S. National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (Washington, DC), major – public relations, in 1997.

I’ve been working in various Russian, British, Canadian, Chinese mass media since 1987 to date. In 1993-1997, I was a member of Moscow Provincial Parliament.

I moved to Canada permanently in 2002, but had to come back to Moscow in 2008, after my newborn son was abducted by his Russian mother. (This is why and when my struggle started).
