After graduating from the journalistic faculty of the Voronezh State University in Russia specialising in agricultural management, Vladislav began working in one of Russia's largest livestock news and trading service, Agro.ru. Over the following three years he went from a staff journalist to the chief expert, managing most of the information flow about the livestock industry of the Custom Union, former Soviet Union members, and Eastern Europe countries. During that period he also graduated from the Voronezh School of foreign languages where he studied English for a year. He went on to work at the Russian magazine Compound Feed Magazine, which highlights the state of affairs in the feed industry of all Custom Union members. In the beginning of 2011 Vladislav started contributing to World Poultry, and a little later Pig Progress and All About Feed.
