Luke Harding is a British journalist who has been employed by The Guardian since 1996. 'Blackcatte' referred to him as "the Guardian's #1 Russia-Hater",[1] Craig Murray as an "MI6 mouthpiece"[2] and Kit Klarenberg (for Sputnik) as "MI6 tool".[3]

Luke Harding has written eight books and co-authored a number of others.[4]

Expulsion from Russia

Harding and was based in Russia from 2007 until, returning from a stay in the UK on 5 February 2011, he was refused re-entry to Russia and deported back the same day.[5] The Guardian said his expulsion was linked to critical articles he wrote on Russia, a claim denied by the Russian government. After the reversal of the decision on 9 February 2011 and the granting of a short-term visa, Harding chose not to seek a further visa extension. His 2011 book "Mafia State" discusses his experience in Russia and the political system under Vladimir Putin.[6]

Disinterest in Katherine Horton's case

When Katherine Horton reported her case to Luke Harding, he asked her "What nationality are you?" and did not show further interest in it.[7]

Where's the Collusion?

Where's the Collusion?

In November 2017, Luke Harding published "Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win" on the alleged Russian interference in the US/2016 Presidential election. The book examines the dirty dossier by former British spy Christopher Steele, and alleges that Trump was the subject of at least five years of "cultivation" by Soviet/Russian intelligence services prior to his election, and possibly by the KGB as early as 1987.[8]

In December 2017, Aaron Maté of The Real News Network asked Luke Harding Where's the Collusion? in what Jonathan Cook described as a "car-crash" interview.[9]


A Quote by Luke Harding

Orbis Business Intelligence“The @Telegraph story claiming a link between Sergei #Skripal and Christopher Steele's company Orbis is wrong, I understand. Skripal had nothing to do with Trump dossier. Skripal had nothing to do with Trump dossier.”2018X
