Paris – the capital of France, and Geneva – the capital of UN offices in Europe and many other international organizations, were always under the unwavering attention of intelligence services from different countries. The large number of foreigners and top secrets in diplomatic safes and other delegations in these cities, the traditional welcoming approach to foreigners and quite a liberal mode of life and communication sometimes made it easier for the ‘soldiers of the invisible front’ to fulfill their tasks. This is what the memoirs of a Soviet foreign intelligence veteran, a high-class professional and colonel in retirement are about.
Yet an intelligence officer’s work is not only limited to collecting information required by Headquarters. He works in a specific country, in a specific city. That in itself spells constant contact with Headquarters, covering this up with neutral connections, with famous people or their entourage, interesting meetings and contacts. The author’s observant gaze will allow the reader to get acquainted with some moments in the life of the Russian diaspora, and to immerse themselves in the daily activities of the intelligence officer abroad.
