About us

SOVA Research Center is a group of researchers whose interests include the problems of nationalism and xenophobia, the relationship between religion and society, and the formation and implementation of anti-extremist policy in Russia. On this website we publish the results of our daily monitoring, our reports and presentations, etc. Almost all news and most of the research is published in Russian only.

Our group in its current form began operating in August 2023 after the liquidation of the regional public organization SOVA Center for Information and Analysis (ROO Tsentr “Sova”), which had existed since 2002. We carry out our work using the website and other intellectual resources created by ROO Tsentr “Sova”.

In addition to the three large sections containing news, publications, and documents, the English part of the website features an open database, books, and reports published in the Analytics section.
