Presentation of the Book “The Compatriots: The Brutal and Chaotic History of Russia’s Exile, Emigres, and Agents Abroad”
The Salisbury attack was in all the media headlines few years ago, but the history of Russian espionage in Europe is hardly a new phenomenon. The book “The Compatriots: The Brutal and Chaotic History of Russia’s Exiles, Émigrés, and Agents Abroad” by Andrei Soldatov and Irina Borogan examines the shifting role of Russian expatriates throughout history, and their complicated, unbreakable relationship with the mother country – be it antagonistic or far too chummy.
