The Chechen Assassination Plot Summary

The Chechen Assassination Plot by Anthony Tobias

BASED ON TRUE EVENTS this is a tale of International espionage, illegal arms, love, deceit and murder.It's 1993 and the Russian state of Chechnya is threatening independence. Russia's oilfields are in Chechnya and the Russians are desperate to keep hold of them.Self- proclaimed Chechen President Dudayev sends Mikhail Kaynskov and his brother to London as Ambassadors, to seek recognition for an independent Chechnya. They are also commissioned to buy arms from a corrupt MOD official to defend Chechnya against Russia. Kaynskov has unlimited funds, a passion for high living - and prostitutes.The KGB blackmail two Armenian petty criminals, Gregor and Rostya to go to London and carry out a mission for Russia, to put a stop to Chechnya's plans.KGB Agent Vee kills Kaynskov's London contact, takes his place andestablishes Gregor and Rostya as the Ambassadors' assistants. MI5, under the watchful eye of Andrew Harrigan and The Foreign Office are aware that British involvement could end in another cold war so follow developments, merely monitoring the situation. The Armenians fail to abort the arms deal.Agent Vee receives instructions from the KGB and orders the Armenians to eliminate the Ambassador brothersUnwillingly, Gregor and Rostan carry out the murders. Through a mixture of incompetence and greed the bodies are discovered in a cardboard packing case by the delivery driver and the Armenians are arrested.Whilst on remand Gregor becomes suicidal and tries to persuade his lawyer, Leon Chainey, to arrange a deal with MI5 in exchange for information about the KGB. He knows that if the KGB find out they will kill him so Chainey arranges for him to be moved to Belmarsh high security prison for safety.In Chechnya the situation worsens, Dudayev - desperate for arms, sends more 'diplomats' to London and a hit man called Vasler to avenge the deaths of his Ambassadors, the Kaynskov brothers. But Vasler does not stop at the killers.These bizarre trail of events are subsequently unveiled through the London courts of justice and the news media. Meanwhile in Chechnya a war with Russia develops, which continues to this day.
