Week in Great Falls

Former KGB Agent to Speak at Senior Center Event

Jack Platt, of the CIA, and Gennadiy Vasilenko, of the KGB, were assigned to corrupt each other. These two agents were to convince the other into betraying his country during the Cold War, but instead became best friends for life.

The event will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the St. Francis Episcopal Church, 9220 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls.
