Chinese Political Mini-Novella: The Last Assassin’s Mace Left Over From Before the Dissolution of the Soviet Union 苏联解体前留下的最后杀手锏

Here below is a Chinese micro-novella found on a Chinese website, Google machine-translated from Chinese to English, then slightly cleaned up.  I’ll copy the Chinese text below the translation.  Sometimes articles with a political tinge disappear suddenly from Chinese websites for ideological health reasons.  So I put a copy down there just in case.    The mini-novella posting didn’t list the author’s name.

The Assassin’s Mace Left Behind from Before the Collapse of the Soviet Union (novel)

[ https://www.bilibili.com/read/cv721541/ ]

In March 1986, a special plane flew from Moscow to New York, and there were only two passengers in the large cabin – Yuri Dobrynin and his wife Jelena.

The Ambassador left

Dobrynin is uneasy about this treatment, but this means that he has become one of the secretaries of the Central Committee of the CPSU.

This was his last trip to the United States as the Soviet ambassador to the United States. He arrived in Washington on March 15, 1962. Today, he has been a legendary ambassador for the past twenty-four years. He is the most important between the two superpowers. Communicator.

Over the years, he has experienced the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Kennedy Assassination, the Vietnam War, the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States, the Afghan War, the Star Wars… Rusk, Kissinger, Brzezinski, Schultz are both their opponents. It is also his friend.

The waiter brought him a gin, and Dobrynin shook his glass and sighed softly.

He knew that Gorbachev forcibly removed him from Washington and returned to Moscow as a ****, not to promote him. Otherwise, he should succeed Gromyko as foreign minister. However, Gorbachev handed this important position to a Georgian who was ignorant of diplomacy – Shevardnadze.

Since 1985, he has been observing Gorbachev. He believes that under the leadership of this man, the Soviet Union is doomed to be arrogant.

He saw the darkness of his future and saw the ominous signs of the future of the Soviet Union.

On April 7, after the ambassador handled the handover, he went to the White House to resign to President Reagan.

The South Lawn is sunny and warm, and Secretary of State Schultz, National Security Adviser Poyn Dexter, Regan, Matlock and other White House officials all put on formal gowns to accompany the President to meet Dobrynin.

After the two-hour conversation, Reagan got up and sent Dobrynin out of the oval office, through the garden, and sent him to the side of the car.

When no ambassador of a country resigns, he can get such a high standard of courtesy. But Dobrynin knows that it is not about his relationship with Reagan, but because of the strength of the Soviet Union.

Next, there are constantly various farewell banquets, the Senate, the House of Representatives, the State Department, the diplomatic corps, the media, the business, the military… waiting for him.

However, Dobrynin did not sleep well before leaving the United States. As a staunch Bolshevik, he was unable to save his country’s destiny, and Gorbachev was driving the ship of state onto the rocks.

However, Dobrynin is determined to awaken a “cold one” and give the United States a heavy blow in the future.

The Deep Water Bomb

In mid-April, Dobrynin quietly came to New York to open the FBI’s secret police in Washington on the grounds of attending the farewell to the United Nations Headquarters.

The “cold one”, in addition to the KGB President Andropov, is the only single-line contact, and only the two of them know the existence of “cold one”.

Dobrynin usually called him Donnie, and when he arrived in New York, he immediately sent a unique meeting signal to Donnie. , Location: Newark Harbor Marina, time, 12 o’clock in the middle of the night.

In the port of Newark under the stars, the waves are rhythmically impacting the bank, and Dobrynin avoids the dim light and stands alone in the shadows. Wearing a top hat, erecting a coat collar, motionless like a silhouette, waiting quietly.

At 12 o’clock, a tall man of forty years old suddenly flashed from the other shadow and quickly moved over to him.

The tall man groaned in his mouth: “The flowers in the basket are fragrant, listen to me, sing, sing, and come to Nanniwan…”

Dobrynin sang: “I hope that from the future, you and I will never forget that evening on the outskirts of Moscow.”

The two large hands were tightly held together, and they shouted in unison: Comrade!

Dobrynin felt that the bones of his hands were almost broken, and he finally pulled out his hand and licked his hand.

“Donnie, I have to be transferred back to Moscow.” Dobrynin said.

“What do I do?” the tall man asked urgently.

“Continue to lie low, wait for the order.”

Is there any other contact?”

Dobrynin replied solemnly: “For a long time, you will not have contacts in the United States.”

“I don’t have to do anything?”

“Do you know Sorge?” Dobrynin asked.

The tall man nodded. “My idol, red super spy.”

“Yes, he is German, you are also a German descendant.”

“We all hate the bourgeoisie, please have the organization give me a test.” The tall man clenched his fist.

Dobrynin patted his shoulder. “No, Donnie, your mission is to be a sleeper.”

“I want to act.” Downey was a little excited.

“The Soviet Union will be dissolved by the enemy. You will have to bide your time, waiting for the day when you can stick your dagger into the enemy’s heart.”

Donnie looked sadly at the stars and said, “Long live the Soviet Union!”

“The real Bolsheviks will have to face the reality bravely, Donnie, the organization will make you a New York real estate tycoon.”

“But, I am going bankrupt again, my father doesn’t have enough capital…”

“The organization will arrange for you to operate the funds.” Dobrynin handed him a big check.

“I will complete the task.” Donnie quickly stuffed the check into the pocket.

“You are in New York, more arrogant and better than any capitalist. The FBI will not suspect a rogue.”

“I have no problem with that.”

“Remember, you have to become a businessman that politicians like and get into the White House.”

Donnie looked around and “Then, when what should I do there? Steal information?”

“Can’t you be a little more ambitious? You should be aiming at becoming the master of the of the White House.” Dobrynin said sharply.

“How could that be?”

“Incite the masses, help the workers and peasants, and stand with the working class.”

“But will the bourgeois newspapers let me get away with that? They will suspect me of colluding with the Russians.”

“Be at ease, Donnie, the workers and peasants will support you.”

Donnie sings softly: “The workers, peasants and soldiers unite and move forward, and they are united. The workers, peasants and soldiers join forces to move forward and destroy the enemy…”

Dobrynin looked at his watch. “It’s not too late, Donnie, you can come to Moscow next year to observe. If the Soviet Union is gone, you have to be patient.”

“how about you?”

“I don’t care, but the Kremlin will definitely have big guys. By then, your information will be unblocked.”

Will I have a new superior when I am activated?”

“Yes, your mission will be activated.”

How long? Ten years, twenty years?” Donnie was in a hurry.

“Be sure to take care of your health. Even if you are age 70, you must take up the burden of defeating imperialism and its minions.” Dobrynin reached out.

“You take care too.” Donnie held his hand tightly, and Dobrynin’s eyes watered from the bone-crushing handshake.

Donnie was a little moved and took out five hundred dollars. “Comrade, please give my party fees to the organization.”

Dobrynin nodded, took the banknotes and planned to leave.

Donnie called again: “Wait a minute, comrade, can you give me two hundred?”

Dobrynin snorted. “This is outrageous.”

“I remember that I still have to go out for a midnight snack, give me three hundred.”

“Don’t you say two hundred?”

“Is there? I clearly said three hundred.” He pulled the ambassador’s sleeves.

Dobrynin returned the three hundred pieces to him and quickly evacuated. Before getting on the bus, he felt that this “cold” was more destructive than he thought.

Donnie walked alone in the shadow of Newark Harbor. The sea breeze blew his hair. Thirty years later, a loyal hymn was being played at the White House.

The above story is purely fictitious. If there is similarity, it is a coincidence.

苏联解体前留下的最后杀手锏(小说转载)

小说杂谈 7-12

1196阅读41喜欢8评论

1986年3月,一架专机从莫斯科飞往纽约,偌大的机舱里只有两名乘客–尤里.多勃雷宁和他的夫人伊莲娜。

大使离去

多勃雷宁为这样的待遇感到不安,然而这意味着他已经成为苏共中央委员会书记之一。

这是他以苏联驻美国大使身份最后一次前往美国,从1962年3月15日抵达华盛顿,到今天整整过去了二十四年,他被称为传奇大使,是两个超级大国之间最重要的沟通者。

这些年来,他经历过古巴导弹危机,肯尼迪遇刺案,越南战争,中美建交,阿富汗战争,星球大战……腊斯克,基辛格,布热津斯基,舒尔茨这些人既是他的对手,亦是他的朋友。

服务员给他端来了一杯杜松子酒,多勃雷宁晃着酒杯,轻轻叹了口气。

他知道戈尔巴乔夫强行将他调离华盛顿,回莫斯科当****,决不是为了提拔他,否则,他应当接替葛罗米柯成为外交部长。然而,戈尔巴乔夫将这一要职交给了一位对外交一窍不通的格鲁吉亚人–谢瓦尔德纳泽。

1985年开始,他就一直在观察戈尔巴乔夫,他相信苏联在这个人的领导下,注定凶多吉少。

他看到了自己未来的灰暗,也看到了苏联未来的不祥之兆。

4月7日,大使处理完交接事务后,前往白宫向里根总统辞行。

南草坪阳光明媚,暖意融融,国务卿舒尔茨,国家安全顾问波因德克斯特,里甘,马特洛克等白宫要员全部换上正式礼服,陪同总统会见多勃雷宁。

两小时的谈话结束后,里根起身送多勃雷宁走出椭圆形办公室,穿过花园,一直送他到了专车边上。

没有一个国家的大使辞行时,可以得到如此高规格的礼遇。但多勃雷宁知道,不是他跟里根交情有多深,而是因为苏联的强大。

接下来,不断有各种告别宴会,参议院的,众议院的,国务院的,外交使团的,媒体的,商界的,军界的……等着他。

然而,多勃雷宁在离开美国之前,没有睡过一个好觉,作为一名坚定的布尔什维克,他无力挽救他的国家命运,戈尔巴乔夫正带着这艘大船走向沉没。

不过,多勃雷宁决心唤醒一颗“冷子”,在将来给美国以沉重一击。

深水炸弹

四月中旬,多勃雷宁以参加联合国总部告别会为由,甩开FBI布在华盛顿的秘密警察们,悄然来到纽约。

这颗“冷子”,除了克格勃主席安德罗波夫之外,他是唯一的单线联系人,世上也只有他们两人知道“冷子”的存在。

多勃雷宁平时管“冷子”叫唐尼,到了纽约后,马上向唐尼发出独有的见面讯号。,地点:纽瓦克港码头,时间,深夜12点。

星空下的纽瓦克港,海浪有节奏地冲击着岸堤,多勃雷宁避开昏黄的灯光,独自一人站在阴影之中。戴着礼帽,竖起大衣衣领,像个剪影般地一动不动,静静地等待着。

12点整,一名四十岁左右的高个子男子身影,突然从另一处阴影里闪出,快速向他移动过来。

高个男子嘴里哼着:“花篮里花儿香,听我来唱一唱,唱一呀唱,来到了南泥湾……”

多勃雷宁接唱:“但愿从今后,你我永不忘,莫斯科郊外的晚上。”

两双大手紧紧握在了一起,异口同声轻轻喊道:同志!

多勃雷宁感觉手骨都快被握碎了,好不容易抽出手来,不动声色地揉了揉手。

“唐尼,我要被调回莫斯科了。”多勃雷宁说道。

“那我怎么办?”高个男子急问道。

“继续潜伏,等待命令。”

“会有别的联系人吗?”

多勃雷宁面色凝重地答道:“很长一段时间内,你在美国不会有联系人。”

“我不用做点什么吗?”

“你知道佐尔格吗?”多勃雷宁反问道。

高个男子点点头,“我的偶像,超级红色特工。”

“对,他是德国人,你也是德国后裔。”

“我们都痛恨资产阶级,请组织考验我吧。”高个男子握紧了拳头。

多勃雷宁拍了拍他的肩膀,“不,唐尼,你的任务是潜伏。”

“我要行动。”唐尼有些激动。

“苏维埃联盟将被敌人瓦解,你要坚持到打入敌人心脏那一天。”

唐尼悲伤地望向星空,“苏维埃联盟万岁!”

“真正的布尔什维克要勇敢面对现实,唐尼,组织上要将你打造成纽约房地产大亨。”

“可是,我又快破产了,老爸那点资本不够我……”

“组织上会给你安排运作资金的。”多勃雷宁递给了他一张大额支票。

“我一定会完成任务。”唐尼将支票快速塞入口袋。

“你在纽约,要比任何一个资本家更荒淫,更好色。FBI不会怀疑一个流氓的。”

“这个我没问题。”

“记住,你要变成一位讨政客喜欢的商人,并进入白宫。”

唐尼看了看四周,“然后,偷点情报?”

“能不能有点志向?你要成为白宫的主人。”多勃雷宁厉声说道。

“这怎么可能?”

“发动群众,扶助工农,与工人阶级站在一起。”

“但资产阶级报纸会放过我吗?它们会怀疑我勾结俄国人。”

“放心,唐尼,工农群众会支持你的。”

唐尼轻轻唱道:“工农兵联合起来,向前进,万众一心. 工农兵联合起来,向前进,消灭敌人……”

多勃雷宁看了看表,“时间不早了,唐尼,明年你可以来莫斯科观察一下,如果苏联不在了,你要有耐心。”

“那你呢?”

“我不重要,但克里姆林宫肯定还会出现大人物,到时,你的资料将被解封。”

“我到时会有新的上线?”

“是的,你的使命将被唤醒。”

“要多久?十年,二十年?“唐尼有些着急。

“一定要保重身体,哪怕到了古稀之年,你也要把打倒帝国主义和它的爪牙们的担子挑起来。”多勃雷宁伸出了手。

“您也保重。”唐尼紧紧握住他的手,多勃雷宁眼睛湿润了,因为骨头又碎了。

唐尼有点感动,掏出五百美元,“同志,请将我的党费交给组织。”

多勃雷宁点点头,接过钞票,打算离去。

唐尼又叫道:“等一下,同志,能还给我两百块吗?”

多勃雷宁楞了一下,“这事没有出尔反尔的。”

“我想起我还得吃宵夜呢,还给我三百块吧。”

“不是说两百吗?”

“有吗?我明明说的是三百。”他拉住了大使的衣袖。

多勃雷宁把三百块退回给他,迅速撤离。上车前,他觉得这颗“冷子”比他想象的破坏力还要大。

唐尼一个人走在纽瓦克港的阴影里,海风吹乱了他的头发,三十年后,一曲忠诚的赞歌在白宫奏响。

以上故事,纯属虚构,如有雷同,实属巧合
