Owen Matthews, a journalist with over 25 years’ experience covering Russia, has won the annual Pushkin House Book Prize of £10,000 for Overreach: The Inside Story of Putin's War Against Ukraine (HarperCollins).

You can read the full winner announcement on our website.

Titles on this year’s Book Prize shortlist included insights into the Russo-Ukrainian war; illicit gay relationships and friendships in fin-de-siècle Russia; the illegal Soviet campaign that almost led to the extinction of endangered whale populations; and the cultural perils of bringing Sesame Street to Russia.

These books illustrate the valuable contribution that academics make to our understanding of Russia’s complex culture, history and people, particularly during our current realities since 24 February 2022.
