This interview is not exactly hot off the press but it offers some interesting insights into the murky world of Russian intelligence. Foreign Policy published an interview with Yevgenia Albats is professor of political science at the Moscow-based state university, The Higher School of Economics, in wake of the Litvinenko poisoning. The answer to the question on everyone's mind: Who is the FSB? Who controls them? What is the danger coming from them? is that nobody knows. What seems to be apparent, though, is that we are not dealing with the KGB anymore when its goals were clearly defined by the Soviet ideology and which was working more or less directly in the interest of the Soviet state.
