History 15/02/20 Operation “Oriental dance”: who wanted to eliminate Boris Yeltsin

“Operation belly dance” could go down in history as the first attempted assassination of Boris Yeltsin. However, a KGB Colonel, who wished to remain anonymous, said about her only 3 years later. Then the customer of a crime was already in prison, however, another matter.

the Operation in Tajikistan

it is believed that the first attempt on Boris Yeltsin was committed at the end of September 1989 when the future President, according to one version, was pushed from the bridge into the water is unknown. However, as it turned out, Yeltsin was to eliminate another summer of the same year. This became known in December 1992 thanks to a former KGB Colonel, who in turn opened the heart with journalists. According to the Colonel, Boris planned to eliminate during a working visit to Tajikistan, where then was the construction of the Sangtuda HPP. Perhaps that is why this operation, organized by the KGB, was called “Oriental dance”.

it is Noteworthy that, if you believe Fedor Razzakov, the author of the book “Behind whose back the President is hiding?”, mentioned the Colonel claimed that the operation took part the Chairman of the Tajik SSR KGB Vladimir Pekel. The executor of murder of Yeltsin or, as it was called “accomplices”, Bespalov was appointed the Colonel himself, but has been ordered by Vladimir Kryuchkov, head of KGB of the USSR. Calling the main “conspirators”, the Colonel himself chose to remain anonymous. However, in an interview, he said that in the near future will reveal their identity and to apply to the relevant authorities with the requirement about excitation of criminal case concerning Petkele and Kryuchkov.

Accused of “Matrosskaya Tishina”

the Sensational confession of the Cheka anonymous thundered all over the country when Vladimir Kryuchkov was already taken into custody. However, in “Matrosskaya Tishina” head of the KGB was quite another matter: he was one of the participants in the August coup of 1991 and a member of the emergency Committee. After Kryuchkov was arrested, he was showered with all sorts of accusations. So, according to Oleksandr Formanchuk in his book “Myths of Soviet-era” ally of Mikhail Gorbachev, architect of Perestroika Alexander Yakovlev suddenly told that Vladimir Kryuchkov was going to kill him. In order to protect themselves, Yakovlev had to write several letters revealing Kryuchkov. These letters in the event of the death of the “architect” had to go to a kind of the three recipients.

Vladimir Kryuchkov all the words Yakovleva deny, as they deny the story of ex-KGB Colonel on preparation of attempt at Boris Yeltsin. Besides, according to Nikolay Zenkovich, the author of the publication “the Assassination and staging: from Lenin to Yeltsin,” Hooks told his lawyer Ivanov to appeal to the General Prosecutor with a request to check revelations and Yakovlev, and a failed killer Yeltsin. Ivanov was very surprised at this request and asked Kryukov, is one wants to be accused even in those crimes.

the Conclusion of the case and the reasons for slander

Validation upon conversion of Vladimir Kryuchkov to the Prosecutor’s office was delayed due to the fact that it was necessary to get information outside the Russian Federation. However, in the end, Kryuchkov received a response to your request. What was the answer, Kryuchkov wrote in his memoirs “Personal record”. Prosecutors refused to initiate a criminal case about attempt at Boris Yeltsin “in the absence of the event”. A similar decision was rendered in connection with allegations of Alexander Yakovlev. At least, so he argued, Vladimir Kryuchkov.

the Former Chairman of the KGB lamented only the fact that Yakovlev was not prosecuted for slander. However, this is not possible, as the materials of figsurinova was not a statement of the ideologist of Perestroika, but only articles posted in the media. However, most historians and biographers believe the word Yakovleva, as well as information about the operation “Eastern dance” a blatant lie. For example, Fedor Razzakov suggests that the interview of Colonel in the KGB, which was supposed to kill Yeltsin, it was just a newspaper “duck”, intended to aggravate the condition and position of the arrested Vladimir Kryuchkov.
