An insight into the machinations of Russian intrigue and politics a experienced by Derek Weaving,
a fluent Russian speaker, who lived in Moscow for 20 years. Initially a member of the British
Defence Staff, Derek gravitated to be a Policy Advisor to the Russian Government and thence
an MD to Renaissance Capital, Moscow.
Guests will hear first hand accounts the ‘characters in the plot’,  the dissidents, both alive and dead,
and some of the strange events leading to their demise.
The evening will be introduced by Vice-Admiral, Sir Jonathan Todd KCB, CBE who sets the scene in
the Cold War Years and Derek then brings us all up to date after the Berlin Wall.
