Oldest Soviet Intelligence Officer Died in St. Petersburg

On January 4 the Soviet intelligence officer Anatoly Gurevich died in St. Petersburg at the age of 95. Before and during World War II, Anatoly was known as Kent of the Soviet intelligence service. He was a member of the legendary Red Chapel anti-Hitler movement that united spy groups in Germany, Belgium, France and Switzerland.
      According to one of the versions, Anatoly Gurevich was also the prototype for Stirlitz character in the famous Soviet TV series called Seventeen Moments of Spring (1973).
      In 1947 Anatoly was arrested in the USSR and given 20 years of imprisonment. After Stalins death he was released but not rehabilitated and put in jail again during the Khrushchevs regime. Anatoly Gurevich spent 25 years in the Soviet jail and was completely rehabilitated only in 1991.
