Re: Joining Ukraine discussion #ukraine


I've seen him mentioned in a Russian language article under the name Чурапин (standard transliteration Churapin). "Ch" in his name is read as  "chess", "cheer"; "ou" transliteration to French to express the Russian letter/sound "у" (book).

There are a lot of results in Google for this last name, including WW2-era Soviet military on

Didn't he have ties with MI5 and provided information to them about the German counterfeit currency plan?  He had to be well placed to be in the know about this information.  Having a hard time reconciling his role in the counterfeiting intelligence with his stateless status and being an enlisted man or a junior office (not sure about his rank).  But then again, I don't know much about him.
