Yes you read it right. The MI6 was directly involved in that notoriously difficult assassination of Rasputin. Perhaps common knowledge to many on here but certainly news to me.

A Cossack colonel called Mohammed Bek Hadji Lashet, and his gang used the women to attract communists to a lakeside villa where they were tortured and then killed, according to a new history of the intelligence service.

The book, Six, by former military intelligence officer Michael Smith, reveals that there was a culture of assassinations within the Secret Intelligence Service, also known as MI6, during the First World War.

It would appear that Rasputin himself fell prey to one of these vixen traps, and the fatal shot was fired by an MI6 officer. It is also suggested in the material that the entire Soviet leadership was proposed as a target by Sidney Reilly, nicknamed the “Ace of Spies.”

The article is a really good read and worth checking out. I admit that I myself had no idea that British intelligence were this involved in Russian politics at this time. Although the methods of bait and capture appear quite crude in the circumstances described, I can't help but feel the exact same ploy would probably still work today.

all I can say is this. "this is history being rewritten." Who knows what happened in the pass?

Revisionism is the plague of the modern historian!


Here's a few more links for the story focusing primarily on that crazy monk. The Truthseeker article is probably the best in there but relates to an earlier article and film;

If I recall my history correctly, Rasputin was shot, stabbed, poisoned and fell into a river and went with the current
under the ice where he drowned.
