Anatoly Aleksandrovich Wasserman (Russian: Анато́лий Алекса́ндрович Ва́ссерман, Ukrainian: Анатолій Олександрович Вассерман; born 9 December 1952, in Odessa, USSR) is a journalist and political pundit who has won television game-shows.[1]


Wasserman has worked as a journalist since 23 November 1991 to the present (throughout 1996–1999, for computer magazines in particular). In 1994 he was a candidate for the position of Deputy in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and took second place in the electoral district.[2]

After the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation and the start of the war in Donbass Wassermann became increasingly critical towards Ukrainian government. In 2015, the Security Service of Ukraine opened a criminal investigation against him for alleged separatist activity.[3]

On 27 January 2016 Wassermann became naturalized Russian citizen (citizenship was granted by Vladimir Putin).[3]

On 27 June 2016 he was nominated as a candidate for the State Duma of Russia from the party A Just Russia.[4]
