"He was murdered?"

"In front of fifteen hundred people? How!"

"You think our borders keep us safe? Look at what happened to the Nobel prize winner."

"He was from Moscow."

"Or Mr. Basov's two aides. Top scientists themselves. They just vanished. It's enough to put a shiver down your back."

"It's a bad time to be Russian. I thought it was terrible enough in '27."
