A Tired AnarchyIssue: Spring 1995
Russia, for our officials and foreign policy leaders, is an
increasingly scary and strange place. We don't seem to know where we
are or what we are doing.
The Chechen war climaxed a crescendo of bizarre and troubling events.
The Moscow journalist Dmitri Kholodov, who was investigating
scandalous thefts by army generals, the training of mafia hit men by
the army, and FSK (ex-KGB) destabilization operations against
Chechnya, received a briefcase from the FSK. When he opened it, it
exploded and he was killed.
