Episode details

Adrian Goldberg talks to Dr Yuri Felshtinsky who wrote Blowing Up Russia: Terror From Within - a book which alleged that a series of apartment block bombings in Russia in 1999 were false flag attacks engineered by the security services.

At the time, the bombings – which killed 307 people - were blamed on Islamist terrorists and were used by Vladimir Putin to strengthen his grip on power,


Dr Felshtinsky’s book was co written with former KGB and FSB Colonel Alexander Litvinenko – who was poisoned in London in 2006 in what is widely thought to have been a revenge killing by the Russian state approved by Putin.


We can now reveal that the serialisation of Blowing Up Russia in the independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta was sanctioned by former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
