Smidovich in The Hot WarEdit

After escaping China, Vasili Yasevich wound up in Smidovich in the summer of 1951. He was able to convince the local MGB officer, Gleb Sukhanov that he'd hailed from Khabarovsk, a city destroyed by an American atomic bomb a few weeks prior. Yasevich claimed that he'd been outside Khabarovsk proper, visiting a married woman when the Americans attacked. He also claimed that he'd lost his identification card as a result. While Sukhanov seemed to have his doubts, he was prepared to let Yasevich alone so long as he stayed out of trouble.[1]
