Dear friends,

I wish every day had 36 or 48 hours.  Alas, my days are limited by a puny 24 hours into which I have to squeeze everything, I am failing at that.  So I decided to try to ask for your help with the hope that sombody might be interested in doing research for me.  Here is the kind of person and skill set I am looking for:

I need somebody who can read English and Russian whom I could ask to look for articles on specific topics on the Internet.  What would be most useful for me it to get a daily bullet-style report on facts and events in the Ukraine with links pointing to the source.  Something like this:

Ukraine economy shrinks 14.8% year-on-year. source:

Украина: гривна обвалилась – магазинные полки опустели.  Source:

That is just an example, of course.

The second example would be to do some targeted research to reply to a question.  For example: “please find out what Rihat Akhmetov has declared about Kolomoiskii in the past 48 hours” or “please research the general leanings of the Malaysian press about MH17 – does it mostly blame Russia or the Ukraine?“.

This kind of research requires not only a good understanding of Russian and English, but also a good understanding of Russian and Ukrainian issues, including economic, political, security and military issues.  You also need to be minimally computer-literate.

If you are interested in this offer, please drop me an email at either [email protected] or [email protected]

Many thanks and kind regards,
