Natasha Mozgovaya has been the chief U.S. correspondent for Haaretz since 2008. She currently resides in Maryland with her husband and two children.
Mozgovaya immigrated to Israel from Russia at age 11, as part of the "Big Aliyah" of the 1990s. She began writing for newspapers in Russian as a teenager, and by the age of 18 had become editor of two supplements for "Vesty," the Russian newspaper in Israel.
In 2000, Mozgovaya joined the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper, covering immigration to Israel and Diaspora Jewry. She went on to report from Gaza during the disengagement in 2005, and from the Lebanese border during the war with Hezbollah in 2006.
Mozgovaya has reported from around the world, contributing in-depth articles on topics ranging from human trafficking in Eastern Europe to the AIDS epidemic in Africa; clashes with the PKK in Turkey to the post-election riots in Kenya.
She has closely followed events in the FSU over the last decade, interviewing the members of the political elite and opposition leaders, as well as iconic figures such as Mikhail Kalashnikov and the infamous "Russian oligarchs."
In addition to her newspaper work, Mozgovaya has anchored several television programs in Hebrew and Russian. In 2008, she co-hosted a Channel 9 series exploring the history of the State of Israel since its establishment in 1948.
Before moving to the U.S. for Haaretz, Mozgovaya was a frequent guest and commentator on various radio and TV programs in Israel.
