What People Think about "Blowing Up Russia: Terror from Within"

Description: Blowing Up Russia contains the allegations of ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko against his former spymasters in Moscow which led to his being murdered in London in November 2006. Vividly written and based on Litvinenko's 20 years of insider knowledge of Russian spy campaigns, Blowing Up Russia describes how the successor of the KGB fabricated terrorist attacks and launched a war. The strapline: Acts of terror, abductions, and contract killings organized by the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation Translated from Russian by Geoffrey Andrews and Co. Opening: Chapter 1: The FSB foments war in Chechnya: No one but a total madman could have wished to drag Russia into any kind of war, let alone a war in the North Caucasus. Dzhokhar Musayevich Dudaev Chapter 2: The secret services run riot: It is worth noting the way in which the press office of the Russian government described the terrorist attack carried out on December 23: Information has been received concerning the dispatch to Moscow from Chechnya of three experienced guerrilla fighters, including one woman, who have instructions to assume the leadership of groups of terrorists sent here previously." The Sting tips Yeltsin, democracy and liberalism into the abyss. Chapter 3: Moscow detectives take on the FSB: Tskhai was made head of the Twelfth Section, which specialized in solving contract killings, and only ten months later, he was already the deputy chief of MUR (Moscow Criminal Investigation Department). Wiki sourced: In 2007 investigator Mikhail Trepashkin said that, according to his FSB sources, "everyone who was involved in the publication of the book Blowing up Russia will be killed", and that three FSB agents have made a trip to Boston to prepare the assassination of Felshtinsky. Boris Berezovsky Chapter 4: Nikolai Platonovich Patrushev (a biographical note): Whereas during the first Chechen war of 1994-1996, the state security forces had simply been attempting to forestall Russias development towards a liberal-democratic society, the political goals of the second Chechen war were far more serious: to provoke Russia into war with Chechnya, and to exploit the ensuing commotion to seize power in Russia at the forthcoming presidential elections in 2000. Chapter 6: The FSB resorts to mass terror: Buinaksk, Moscow, Volgodonsk: The perpetrators of the terrorist attacks in Buinaksk, Moscow, and Volgodonsk were never found, and we can only guess at who was behind the attacks by analogy with the events in Ryazan. They were also former special operations group officers who, according to the head of the 10th Section of the Moscow RUOP, Vitaly Serdiukov, were supremely skilled in using all forms of firearms and could improvise powerful bombs from items that happened to be at hand.

Since then, one of the authors, Alexander Litvinenko, has been poisioned to death - along with a handful of other people who questioned Putin's government. The fact that Litvinenko's revelations about alleged FSB misdeeds were followed two years later by his poisoning led to public accusations that the Russian government was behind his death, resulting in worldwide media coverage."

It revolves around the existing contradictions about what really happen in a city in Russia, where some bombs were planted on a building basement and didn't go off. The Russian have been doing it for a long time.

Are you ready to make your own sound judgement of the story that you are told in order to pick out what seams reasonable and what seams more like conspiration theories, this is a read-worthy book. An example of an important and trustworthy story in the book, is the one that the secret services themselves stood behind the so-called terrorist attacks on compartment-blocks in Moscow and other towns in Russia in the months leading up to the 2000 president election. An example of an important and undocumented story, is to go far in claiming that in reality it is the FSB that controls the Putin administration and not the Putin administration that controls the FSB.

Litvinenko became a KGB officer in 1986, and two years later, was moved into the Military Counter Intelligence. During his time in London Litvinenko authored two books, Blowing up Russia: Terror from within and Lubyanka Criminal Group, where he accused Russian secret services of staging Russian apartment bombings and other terrorism acts to bring Vladimir Putin to power.
