Beskrivelse

A Times and Sunday Times Book of the Year 2020, a Daily Telegraph Book of the Year 2020! 'The Putin book that we've been waiting for' Oliver Bullough, author of Moneyland. 'Books about modern Russia abound ... Belton has surpassed them all. Her much-awaited book is the best and most important on modern Russia' The Times. A chilling and revelatory expose of the KGB's renaissance, Putin's rise to power, and how Russian black cash is subverting the world. In Putin's People, former Moscow correspondent and investigative journalist Catherine Belton reveals the untold story of how Vladimir Putin and his entourage of KGB men seized power in Russia and built a new league of oligarchs. Through exclusive interviews with key inside players, Belton tells how Putin's people conducted their relentless seizure of private companies, took over the economy, siphoned billions, blurred the lines between organised crime and political powers, shut down opponents, and then used their riches and power to extend influence in the West. In a story that ranges from Moscow to London, Switzerland and Trump's America, Putin's People is a gripping and terrifying account of how hopes for the new Russia went astray, with stark consequences for its inhabitants and, increasingly, the world.

Fantastisk bog

Fantastisk afdækning af Putin's vej til magten fra hans KGB-samarbejde med Baader-Meinhoff terroristerne i 1970erne og den russiske mafia til enevældig diktator med sindssyge imperie-drømme. Vi har hørt om regimet som kleptokratisk, men omfanget af svindel og korruption er ubegribeligt. De billion-beløb, magthaverne tilegner sig og smugler ud af landet til undergravelse af vestlig økonomi (gammel KGB taktik) og i sikkerhed fra den hjemlige lovløshed, er ufattelige. Russiske energi-mastodonter og oligarker forsøgte at stoppe bogen ved retten i England, men måtte give op. Beltons dokumentation holder i detaljer, som kan gøre læsningen lidt tung (alle de ukendte navne) uden at bogen dog bliver mindre neglebidende som autentisk thriller.
