After her studies, Anastasia worked for six years as an editor in Channel One Russia. Following her interest in 20th century East-European history in 2015 she finished her second Master program in Eastern-European Studies at Bologna University.

At Bologna, her thesis “Bringing back images’: The Discursive Representation of Audiovisual Documents in the Outreach Programme of the ICTY” was awarded the best thesis award and subsequently published.
