I wonder if it’ll mention Putin?
I don’t know. I haven’t seen the whole thing. He was there for over twenty years waging war on his own people and was a full Colonel in their ranks when, as he says it, the greatest geo-political disaster of the 20th Century occurred. That is, the system that had murdered 30 or 40 million Soviets “citizens” ended. But don’t worry. He’s back in the saddle and keen to restore this wonderful system.
I remember reading a former KGB’s account of a KGB training video. A live man is placed in a plywood coffin. The coffin is put on a slow moving conveyor belt into a crematorium. The box moves with his resistance at first but as it is almost to the crematorium, the box repeatedly jumps several inches in the air above the conveyor as the human inside realizes/panics and...well I stopped reading there.
Frankly, they were much like the Gestapo.
Reconstituted in Russia in 1995 as the Federal Security Service. Its now the federal law enforcement and border security service of the Russian Federation.
It occupies the same building previously occupied in its heyday by the former KGB, which was dismantled in 1991.
