Since his return to Moscow inhe has given just a handful of interviews to Russian media outlets, mainly concerning the more recent work he has done as a geopolitical analyst. Details of his past, or that of his wife, Elena Vavilova, are scarce.
They were promising, young, smart people, they were asked if they wanted to help their country and they said yes. They went through years of training and preparing. Department S, which runs the illegals programme they were on, was the most secretive part of the KGB.
He was also trained in other basics such as communicating in code and surveillance. All the training was done on a one-to-one basis: The programme was the only one of its kind in international espionage. Many assumed it had been stopped, until the FBI swoop. Many intelligence agencies use agents operating without diplomatic cover; some have recruited second-generation immigrants already living abroad, but the Russians have been the only ones to train agents to pretend to be foreigners.
During Soviet times, the illegals had two main functions: The illegals could then spring into action. The KGB sent the couple to Canada in the 80s. It was hardly James Bond, but the work of an agent has always been more tortoise than hare — years spent painstakingly building up the legend.
InAlex was born; a year later the family moved to Paris. As Bezrukov and Vavilova built up their story, the country that had recruited and trained them ceased to exist. The ideology of communism had failed; the fearsome spy agency that had dispatched agents across the globe was discredited and renamed.

An online video of Bezrukovappearing in his post-deportation role as a political analyst, shows him speaking smooth North American with the faintest of twangs.

I speak to Tim on a Sunday afternoon, talking to me on Skype from his kitchen. He has the same facial features and careful parting as his younger brother, but his hair is blond rather than dark.
Looking back on his youth, he tells me his father worked hard, making frequent business trips. When the boys were in their teens, she started work as a real estate agent. He focused on Asia, taking Mandarin lessons and spending a semester in Beijing. The same year, the family became naturalised Americans, with US passports in addition to their Canadian nationality.
The brothers would never live in Canada again; Alex had been one when they left Toronto and Tim only five — but both felt Canadian.

Socrates' Defense How you have felt, O men of Athens, at hearing the speeches of my accusers, I cannot tell; but I know that their persuasive words almost made me forget who I was - such was the effect of them; and yet they have hardly spoken a word of truth.
But many as their falsehoods were, there was one of them which quite amazed me; - I mean when they told you to be upon your guard, and. The one hour documentary entitled "They Were Young And Brave" aired on January 10, to very favorable reviews.
