From Russia With Love: Notorious British Spy And Traitor Kim Philby Praised In New Book Written With Help From Russian Spy Agency
Will Stewart at the British newspaper the Daily Mail reports that the British spy and traitor Kim Philby is getting the hero treatment in a new book being published in Russia.
Kim Philby has been praised as "one of the greatest Soviet spies" by Russia's secret service.
The man whose treachery led to the deaths of many British agents is being eulogised in a book and in a TV documentary in a push to make him a hero to a new generation of Russians.
Philby was part of a ring of Cambridge-educated British agents which also included Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt who passed information to the Soviet Union during the Second World War and at least into the early 1950s.
