Thanks to Blake, dozens of agents of Western intelligence services who worked against the USSR were exposed. Information was received about the so-called Berlin tunnel.

He escaped from prison, moved to Moscow, where he still lives. He received the title of colonel of the KGB. For a long time he taught at the Academy of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Russia.
In the program “News on Saturday,” Sergey Brilev, during an interview, asked Blake if he was regretting his transfer to the service of the Country of Soviets.
To which Georgy Ivanovich (that is Blake’s name in Russia) replied that if he had such an opportunity, he would repeat his life path.
George Blake expressed the hope that in a certain time they would begin their revival of the idea of a society of social justice and true equality, which suddenly disappeared with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
