Early life and education

Alexander Vindman and his twin brother Yevgeny were born in Ukraine. After the death of their mother, they were brought to New York in December 1979 by their father, Semyon (Simon) along with their older brother. They grew up in Brooklyn's "Little Odessa" neighborhood. The twins and their maternal grandmother were in the Ken Burns film, "The Statue of Liberty (film)".[1] Vindman speaks fluent Russian and Ukrainian.[2]

Lt. Col. Vindman has served for two decades in the U.S. Army. He was promoted to the rank of major during 2008 [3] and was promoted to lieutenant colonel on September 8, 2015.[4] As an infantry officer he served multiple overseas tours, including South Korea and Germany. He is a decorated Iraq War veteran, having received a Purple Heart after being wounded by a roadside bomb.[5]

In his role on the NSC, Vindman became part of the U.S. delegation at the inauguration of the Ukraine's newly elected president, Volodymyr Zelensky.[6] [7]

Beginning in 2008, Vindman became a Foreign Area Officer specializing in Eurasia. In this capacity he served in the U.S. embassies in Kiev, Ukraine and Moscow, Russia. Returning to Washington, D.C. he was then a politico-military affairs officer focused on Russia for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In July 2018, Vindman accepted an assignment with the National Security Council.[8]

He has been subpoenaed to testify before Congressional investigators on October 29, 2019 regarding his knowledge regarding his possible knowledge of a July 25, 2019 telephone call between Zelensky and President Donald Trump.[9][10] He is expected to be the first White House official to testify who was actually on this telephone call that is at the heart of the impeachment inquiry, in which Trump is alleged to have asked Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is campaigning for president. Based on his planned opening statement, obtained in advance by The New York Times, Vindman's testimony will largely corroborate previous testimony from (presidential advisor), his former manager, and William B. Taylor Jr., acting ambassador to Ukraine.[11]
