Yuri Drozdov: The Mastermind of the Soviet Deep Undercover Spying Program

In the second edition of the new monthly show produced by Newsbud Tales from the Russian Intelligence, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the life and writings of Yuri Drozdov, a KGB major general who passed away in Moscow on June 21, 2017 at the age of 91. Drozdov was one of the masterminds of the Soviet deep undercover operations in the West. He was the long-time head of the legendary KGB Department ‘S’ which prepared and directed the so-called Illegal agents who operated under fake identities in the U.S. and Western Europe. Professor Kovacevic looks at several imaginative KGB operations run by Drozdov as described in his memoir “Fiction Excluded: Notes of the Chief of Illegal Intelligence,” and various TV and print interviews. This is the first time most of this material is discussed in English. Do not miss this exclusive edition of Tales from the Russian Intelligence!
