More from the KGB
This chap is former KGB Major Yuri Shvets, who had the misfortune to get into the KGB and end up in Washington right at the end of the Soviet experiment. By that time it was even beginning to dawn on the lame-brains at the BBC that Soviet Communism might have some flaws. They realised the KGB funding was going to dry up and took the decision to change their editorial stance, to promote the EU as an alternative. But that's another story.
So anyway Yuri came to Washington and claims in his book to have recruited an American journalist as a confidential contact. Whether this is true or not is a matter of some debate.
Perhaps he should have left his uniform (above) back home in Russia instead of wearing it while hitting the Washington cocktail party circuit!
Anyway the good news is you can hire Yuri to speak at your business function or bachelor party, or whatever. Beware though, Vodka is the Russian spy's favorite tipple, and they tend to be able to drink rather a lot of it!
