Yuri Felshtinsky

Yuri Felshtinsky (b. 1956, Moscow) is a Russian historian living in United States. He immigrated into the USA from the Soviet Union in 1978. He graduated from Brandeis University and got his PhD in history from Rutgers University. In 1993, he also defended his Doctor of Science thesis at the Institute of Russian History of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow. Felshtinsky authored several books on modern Russian and early Soviet history, including Blowing up Russia with Alexander Litvinenko and "The Age of Assassins" with Vladimir Pribylovsky [http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/books/article3503559.ece] .

He published a number of books on history of the Communist movement. In a book "Leaders the mobsters" he described Bolshevik party as a mafia-like organization where "almost no one died by a natural cause", based on hundreds of primary and secondary sources. This includes poisoning of Vladimir Lenin, Felix Dzerzhinsky, and Maksim Gorky by Genrikh Yagoda on the orders from Joseph Stalin, murders of Mikhail Frunze, Vyacheslav Menzhinsky, and Leon Trotsky, poisoning of Stalin by Lavrenty Beria, and other similar episodes [ "Leaders the mobsters" [http://www.lib.ru/POLITOLOG/felshtinskij.txt Text online (Russian)] , Moscow, 1999]

In 2007 investigator Mikhail Trepashkin said that, according to his FSB sources, "everyone who was involved in publication of the book Blowing up Russia will be killed", and that three FSB agents have made a trip to Boston to prepare the assassination of Felshtinsky [ [http://www.svobodanews.ru/Transcript/2007/12/01/20071201143422327.html Interview with Mikhail Trepashkin] , RFE/RL, December 1, 2007. Russian "все, кто причастен к выпуску книги «ФСБ взрывает Россию», будут уничтожены, и что выехала в Штаты группа из трех человек, сотрудников федеральной службы безопасности ... по месту жительства Фельштинского в город Бостон." ]
