    A KGB Toady is always a Toady. Zhoopa!

    When reading Tovarish Oleg's book, remember some small details from this KGB toady.
    Russia was, and is a nation of laws built on understandings, and this most people do not understand; that being said Oleg is like any other Toady who wishes his group won out over the other. Had he won, and his group ousted the other, he would be the golden cockerel strutting about the farmyard. However, his group of thieves, murderers, extorters, and double-dealers lost out to another group of thieves, murderers, extorters, and double-dealers.
    Now, on to his attacking the Orthodox clergy, notice, Oleg lightly touches on their working with the KGB, had they not, he does not mention; their safety, and that of their families would have been placed in danger. Convenient?
    Oleg is a Soviet KGB General, who caused the deaths of many people, including his own countrymen, and he slapped himself on the back for it this evil genius. In reading this book, remember Oleg, I enjoy your spirit of Toadyism, but always you will be a vrag soupstat. Off to the dustbin!
