Q. Is there any proof to substantiate your claims?
A. In the video you can listen to a telephone conversation between myself and Paul Shultz (of the CIA) where he confirms that I worked for the Agency. In that same video Senator Chuck Grassley states that the C.I.A confirmed my employment. Furthermore, I received commendation from the U.S. Government.
Q. What sort of poison was in the pellet you were shot with?
A. The most likely poison was ricin. This method was used previously in an attempt to kill Georgi Markov in 1978.
Q. Are you certain it was the KGB that tried to kill you?
Q. What nationality are you?
A. I am Polish-Lithuanian. Lithuania use to be a part of Poland.
Q. Are you still in danger?
A. Probably not so much anymore as the KGB and Soviet Union are no more but since the question of who actually attempted to kill me is unanswered, it is possible that I may very well still be in danger. In any case, my training is second nature to me so I am always watching my back.
Q. Is the A&E “The Plot Against America” your first televised interview?
A. No, I have been appearing on various news and television programs since 1981. I started going public as soon as I recovered enough after being shot.
Q. Didn’t going on TV after being shot put you in more danger?
A. I don’t believe so, I went on TV straight away as a measure to protect myself. As a spy, I was essentially nameless and faceless, people like that can dissapear easilly and quietly. Being a public figure protected me because now, if there was another attempt on my life, it would be newsworthy. Hiding in the spotlight, so to speak.
