I am Yaroslav Trofimov, a WSJ reporter who has been on the ground in Ukraine, ask me anything!
I am Yaroslav Trofimov, chief foreign-affairs correspondent of The Wall Street Journal. I have been working out of Ukraine since January 2022 and covered the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in 2021. I joined the Journal in 1999 and have previously served as Rome, Middle East, and Singapore-based Asia correspondent, as bureau chief in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and as Dubai-based columnist on the greater Middle East. I’m the author of two books, Faith at War (2005) and Siege of Mecca (2007).
