Martin Kragh is a Swedish academic. He was deputy director of the Center for Eastern European Studies at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs. He was also exposed as leader of the Swedish cluster of the Integrity Initiative. He claims to have been asked, but had declined the assignment.[1] In a case of projection, in 2017 he wrote a report[2] on "Russian influence operations in Sweden".


In 2009, Martin Kragh became a doctor of economics in economic history at the Stockholm School of Economics with a thesis on the labor market in the Soviet Union from the 1940s to the 1960s.[3] In 2016, he became associate professor at the Institute for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Uppsala University.

He was head of the Russia and Eurasia program at the Foreign Policy Institute since 2015, and since 2021 is deputy head of the institute's Center for Eastern European Studies.

Kragh has been writing regularly for Svenska Dagbladet's since 2013. He also writes for the National Encyclopedia.[4]

He sits on the board of Sverker Åström's foundation for the promotion of Swedish-Russian relations. The foundation's funds are allocated to younger citizens residing in the Russian Federatiom who wish to study Sweden in the fields of social studies, law, economics and administration, as well as cultural studies in a broad sense.[5]

He sat on the transparency council of the Swedish Institute, and 2012-2016 on the board of the Swedish branch of Transparency International.


Kragh and Sebastian Åsberg were the authors of a 2017 study, Russia’s strategy for influence through public diplomacy and active measures: the Swedish case, where they "analyse the blurring of boundaries between public diplomacy and active measures; document phenomena such as forgeries, disinformation, military threats and agents of influence and define Russian foreign policy strategy."[2] The study included a number of easily identifiable persons as "spreaders of disinformation".[6]

Åsa Lindborg, culture editor at Aftonbladet, criticized Kragh's endeavors as "a democratic problem"[7]. In 2019 she had to resign as editor[8][9]

He was a speaker at the Tylösand Summit 2022, a deep state related yearly conference with no media coverage.
