Pseudonym of Andrei Raevsky, an ex-patriot Russian domiciled in Florida

'The Saker' is a pseudonym of Andrei Raevsky, an ex-patriot Russian domiciled in Florida. Prior to emigrating to the USA he had lived in Switzerland where he was granted Swiss citizenship. He worked for the International Red Cross and was later employed as a military analyst by the Geneva-based UN Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR)[1]. His blog, the Vineyard of the Saker, reportedly got 50,000 page views per day from August - September 2014.[2]

Intelligence work

Of White Russian exile background, Raevsky used to be a military analyst for the General Staff of Switzerland, with a rank of Specialist (Major) for operational training and strategic analysis. He also worked with Polish exiles who were assisting Solidarnosc from aboard, and during the 1980s Afghan war against the Soviet Union he frequent contacts with a covert representative of the (CIA-sponsored warlord) Ahmad Shah Massoud in Europe whom he "helped making important contacts".[3][4]
