Event Details:
Greater Boston Friends of UCU welcome prize-winning author SERHII PLOKHY, the Mykhailo Hrushevsky Professor of Ukrainian History at Harvard and the director
of the university’s Ukrainian Research Institute, for a discussion of his latest book, The Man with the Poison Gun: A Cold War Spy Story.
In the fall of 1961, KGB assassin Bogdan Stashinsky defected to West Germany. After spilling his secrets to the CIA, Stashinsky was put on trial in what would be the most
publicized assassination case of the entire Cold War. Stashinsky’s testimony shook the world of international politics.  His story would inspire films, plays, and books—including Ian Fleming’s last James Bond novel.  A thrilling tale of Soviet spy craft, The Man with the Poison Gun offers unparalleled insight into the shadowy world of
Cold War espionage.
