Publish Date : Sunday 4 August 2019 - 15:03
IBNA- Persian translation of the book 'Russian Roulette (2018) by Michael Isikoff and David Corn will be reviewed by Iranian experts at Iran's House of Humanities Thinkers in Tehran on Tuesday.
According to IBNA correspondent, 'Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump'
has been translated into Persian by Elham Gerami and released by Elmi publishing in Tehran. The meeting for discussing the book will be held with Persian translator and experts Elahe Koulaei, Seyyed Javad Salehi and Hossein Naghashi in attendance.
The book is a story of political skullduggery unprecedented in American history. It weaves together tales of international intrigue, cyber espionage, and superpower rivalry.
After U.S.-Russia relations soured, as Vladimir Putin moved to reassert Russian strength on the global stage, Moscow trained its best hackers and trolls on U.S. political targets and exploited WikiLeaks to disseminate information that could affect the 2016 election.
The Russians were wildly successful and the great break-in of 2016 was no "third-rate burglary." It was far more sophisticated and sinister- a brazen act of political espionage designed to interfere with American democracy. At the end of the day, Trump, the candidate who pursued business deals in Russia, won.
Millions of Americans were left wondering, what the hell happened? This story of high-tech spying and multiple political feuds is told against the backdrop of Trump's strange relationship with Putin and the curious ties between members of his inner circle including Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn and Russia.
The session for reviewing the Persian translation of the book is scheduled for Tuesday at 5 p.m.
