WHAT IT’S LIKE TO HAVE THE KGB AFTER YOU. The Guardian article on zersetzung linked to this memoir in the Guardian (September 23, 2011) by Luke Harding, which is excerpted from his book MAFIA STATE. Harding was a journalist for the Guardian, stationed in Russia, whom the KGB became displeased with. Harding lists some of the things that happened to him during some of the numerous breakins while he was in Moscow:
*all batteries removed from alarm system
