Soviet intelligence icon commemorated

An exhibition, dedicated to the 100th birth anniversary of legendary Soviet intelligence agent Nikolai Kuznetsov, opened in the Russian Urals city of Yekaterinburg on Thursday.

He operated in the occupied Ukrainian city of Rovno during World War II, and was the first to uncover German plans to launch a massive tank attack in the Kursk region and assassinate Stalin Roosevelt and Churchill in Tehran in 1943.

Kuznetsov was killed in action in 1944.
