Explaining myself to the internet.
I’ve been getting lots of questions. For some time now, as a side project, I have been meeting with a former KGB operative, since it relates to my background in interrogation research and…because I used to play spy instead of barbies, and who gets to meet their childhood alter ego?
So this ongoing interview will cover his experience & assignments, life as a KGB in cold war Russia and his life now in the US. The idea is not just to look at the techniques, training and related science, but to share the story of a once deadly man who wants to make a change in his life. Sounds like a movie, yah?

In what area was your work focused?
xKGB: KGB Counterintelligence field office, then KGB espionage division. Working “American direction”, with American citizens. Then SBU espionage against Russia, when I was preparing to kill Russian President Yeltsin.
