Blowing up Russia-Alexander Litvinenko (Terrorism-Chechnya-Islam-Soviet-Communism).pdf
BOTH IN ENGLISH AND RUSSIAN
Blowing up Russia contains the devastating attack of ex-KGB
officer Alexander Litvinenko against his former superiors. He was poisoined
in London with a lethal dose of radio-active Polonium 210 in November 2006.
In association with academic Yuri Felshtinsky, he exposes in a meticulous
study how lethal KGB methods were used to catapult Vladimir Putin into
power as one of the most popular Russian leaders ever to be elected. Banned
in Russia, based on Litvinenko's twenty year's of insider knowledge of
Russia's secret campaigns, eloquently written, Blowing up Russia shows how
the successors of the KGB were able to survive after being cut loose from
communism. Returning to old-style terror and war, they claimed a `Russian
way' of government. After reading Litvinenko's and Felshtinsky's findings,
there seems little doubt that behind the pretence of democracy the
successor of the KGB has regained its absolute control over the Russian
Vividly written and based on Litvinenko's 20 year's of insider's knowledge of Russian spy campaigns and Yuri Felshtinsky's comprehensive academic knowledge, "Blowing up Russia" is a meticulous and gripping story how the secret organs of the Russian state are out of control and plotting a return to Russia as a state of terror. Writing about his co-author, Yuri Felshtinsky recounts how the banning of their book in Russia caused 3 related deaths.
From the Publisher
In this first British publication, Yuri Felshtinsky writes how
in 1999 he contacted Alexander Litvinenko asking for help investigating the
Moscow apartment-block bombings that had happened in September that year.
While they pursued their investigations over the years, three people who
assisted them in Russia were violently killed--two were shot, one was
poisoned. When they first attempted to publish their findings in Russian,
the 5000 copies of the book's print-run were confiscated on the road from
Latvia to Moscow.
