The book "Ruslan Khasbulatov. Political Profile" by Yury Marechenkov was presented in Moscow this Wednesday. The author, the former chairman of the Chechen-Ingush radio and television broadcasting committee and chief of the Russian Supreme Soviet press-service, noted that one will be able to come across many previously unfamiliar facts in this book which offers only the truth.
At the ceremony, Ruslan Khasbulatov, the former speaker of the Russian Supreme Soviet, thanked the sponsors of that event "for modesty since he was neither a banker nor an entrepreneur but a common professor." Khasbulatov reported that he had not read the manuscript but liked the book as "a laconic, compressed but passionate work".
The ex-speaker said he had a very busy life schedule. "I am happy I am so busy, working 18 hours a day," noted Khasbulatov. He is now completing a five-volume book under the title "The Kremlin and Chechen-Russian war". "There is hardly any other person being as well aware of the theme as me," claims Khasbulatov.
The choice of the city of Helsinki is not incidental as the capital of Finland had hosted US-Soviet negotiations on the limitation of nuclear stockpiles in 1969
