Blowing Up Russia contains the devastating attack of ex-KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko against his former superiors. In association with academic Yuri Felshtinsky, he exposes 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 years 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.
Yuri Felshtinsky writes how he contacted Alexander Litvinenko asking for help investigating the Moscow apartment-block bombings in 1999. While they pursued their research, three people who assisted them in Russia were violently killed-two were shot, one was poisoned.
After reading Litvinenko’s and Felshtinsky’s findings, there seems little doubt that behind the pretence of democracy the Russian Federation has remained an international peril.
