With the second anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion approaching in February, the State Department's Eastern Europe office is kindly providing us Kevin Doyle, their economic desk officer for Belarus and Moldova. Kevin works closely with the Ukraine desk and will discuss current policy in the region, and the global impacts of the full-scale invasion as we approach the two-year mark. 

Kevin’s first tour was at the U.S. Embassy in Budapest, Hungary; and second tour was at the U.S. Consulate General in Mumbai, India. He served as a Pickering Fellow in 2017, in the Office of Caucasus Affairs and Regional Conflicts, where he handled the Science for Peace and Security and Global Partners portfolios, representing the United States in NATO meetings in Brussels. 

Kevin attended Dickinson College, with a State Dept. Gilman scholarship in 2014, for a semester in Moscow, Russia and Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.

At Harvard University, where he studied Russian and International Relations, he completed a master's degree (2018) in Regional Studies: Russia, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia with a particular focus on the energy geopolitics of Azerbaijan's natural gas trade. He speaks Russian and some Hungarian.

He graduated from Hillcrest High School in Tuscaloosa, AL, where he participated in the State Dept.'s National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y), studying Russian language in Gatchina, near St. Petersburg.

Despite spending many years abroad, Kevin has managed to keep watching Alabama football – just sometimes at very late hours.  Kevin is married to Jessica Sykes Doyle and they have one child. Kevin’s immediate family still resides in Tuscaloosa.
