This letter was sent to the hotel in London where Darichev and Porgrebevskij
were meeting with the Miami undercover agents. It was intercepted before the
Lithuanians received it. There were two versions -- one in Russian and one in
English -- and U.S. Customs believed that it was meant to warn Darichev that he
might be dealing with the FBI or CIA and at the same time to scare the agents
that someone was "on to them." It is signed with the name Valery, who is
probably the man identified in one wiretap as Valerii Donitzovich.

On the problem of payment for products sold by the Bulgarian company in
The situation does reek of the FBI provocation. The USA tries to weaken the
position of all more or less serious companies selling weapons. The analogous
situation was observed in the USA during sale of Chinese submachine guns by the
Chinese company representatives. Any of the most frightful criminals, any
member of any criminal clan can come either to Bulgaria, Russia or Lithuania
without fear if he has not committed a crime just on the territory of a visited
country (or if he is not wanted by the Interpol). Only representatives of
special services who prepare an act of porovocation (sic) and are afraid of
plunging into situations which can provoke them try to avoid a visit to a
country where a seller or an intermediary lives. The Americans consider
themselves to be very clever but in reality they are dull and primitive. It is
proved by recurrent use of one and the same provocation outline and methods of
carrying on negotiations.
As for systems of protection from high-precision weapons one can say that
customers either have sent idiots who know nothing or (this probability is
maximum taking into account all the facts) lads from the FBI or CIA want to get
a specimen of the system free of charge hoping to arrest it on its delivery to
Please, try to explain to these fools that they should either buy products in
accordance with the existing international regulations or search for idiots in
some other places.
Even buying the system for protection from high-precision weapons for the
proposed nominal price they save considerable sums of money as they will spend
more than one hundred million dollars on development of such systems. Their
desire to get a valuable and expensive thing for nothing demonstrates that they
consider us to be fools being complete idiots themselves.
