Former US intelligence officer Scott Ritter traveled to Sviyazhsk Island with his daughter

The foreign guest visited the main sights of the museum-reserve, located at the confluence of the three rivers Volga, Sviyaga and Pike. First, Scott Ritter went to the Assumption Collection, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, he was shown unique frescoes from the 16th century, including a lifetime image of Ivan the Terrible. It was this king who founded Sviyazhsk, having built a fortress there in 1551.

The American visited the Archaeological Tree Museum “Tatarskaya Slobidka”, where you can see a whole street from the 16th century, preserved thanks to a special wet archaeological layer.

But the Civil War Museum made the biggest impression on the guest. In 1918, Svyazhsk was its epicenter, near the city were the Red Army men driven out of Kazan. To boost morale and restore order in the troops, Leon Trotsky personally arrived at the station near Sviyazhsk in an armored train.


p class=””>According to Scott Ritter, he has a great interest in the historical Civil War period and he himself wrote a master’s thesis on a related subject.

Curiously, the daughter of an American maternal expert is Georgian and Orthodox. In Sviyazhsk, she met her compatriot, who settled on the island many years ago and opened his own khachapur. She spoke to him in Georgian, which he was incredibly happy about, and gave Victoria and her father all kinds of gifts.

Tomorrow, in Kazan, Scott Ritter will present the Russian translation of his book “The Disarmament Race”. The presentation will take place at the Republican Agency for the Press and Mass Communications “Tatmedia”.
