About me

Anastasia has more than 10 years of professional experience of project administration in public sector. She worked as a programme and project officer for the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office in the British Embassy in Moscow. Anastasia worked on a number of UK-funded programmes – International Programme, CSSF (Conflict, Stability and Security Fund), Conflict Prevention Pool, Global Britain Fund, and Global Opportunities Fund.

During those years she worked on projects in different areas - women empowerment, preventing violent extremism, defending human rights, education and cultural exchanges and tackling climate change.

For about 4 years Anastasia was a sole project officer responsible for FCDO-funded Counter/Preventing Violent Extremism Programme in one of the most vulnerable regions in Russia – the North Caucuses. Examples of projects she worked on are Preventing Violent Extremism among youth in the North Caucasus and Psychological support to women and children returned from conflict-affected areas.
