Luke Harding (1968) is a British journalist and foreign correspondent for The Guardian. Harding graduated from Oxford University and was editor of the university newspaper Cherwell. After graduation, he worked for The Sunday Correspondent, The Agrus and the Daily Mail. In 1996 he joined The Guardian. Since 2000, Harding has been the Guardian`s South Asia correspondent, covering the war in Afghanistan and receiving a Foreign Press Association award for his coverage of the NATO takeover of Mazar-i-Sharif. From September 2003, Harding worked as a correspondent in Berlin. Since 2007, he has been the newspaper`s Moscow correspondent. In December 2007, he published an article in which he estimated the fortune of President Vladimir Putin at $ 40 billion. During a press conference in February 2008, Putin denied this claim. As a result of his work in Russia, Harding wrote the book Mafia State, in which he described Russia as a mafia state, and the country`s leadership as driven by two mutually exclusive motives, nationalism and the desire for personal enrichment. Harding was denied entry to Russia on February 8, 2011. The Russian Foreign Ministry explained the refusal by the fact that Harding`s visa had expired, and earlier he violated the accreditation rules and visited the area of ​​the counter-terrorist operation without notifying the security authorities. Harding himself and the newspaper saw the ban as a consequence of Harding`s professional activities. The denial of entry to Harding was the first exile of a Western journalist in post-Soviet Russian history. In 2011, Harding co-published with David Lee a biographical book, WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange`s War on Secrecy, about Julian Assange. The film "The Fifth Estate" was made partly based on the book`s materials. In 2014, Harding`s book The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World`s Most Wanted Man about Edward Snowden was published. Harding put particular emphasis on the legal aspects of The Guardian`s work on the material provided by Snowden. Michiko Kakutani (The New York Times) praised the book, describing it as "a mixture of Le Carré`s novel and some kind of Kafka`s work."
