I am just curios, he was one of the most powerful and wealthiest person in Russia, and yet he killed Rasputin. Browsing through his book "The End of Rasputin", I found interesting information about situation in Russia back in 1905-1918, also Felix's opinion on Russian nobility.
Now, I am not an expert, but some of the statements he made, start me think about authenticity of this book, any opinion on this?

Here my thoughts:
Book was printed in 1926 and prince Dimitri Mirsky (Svyatopolk-Mirsky) was in exile, he returned back to USSR 1932, and was coauthor of infamous "Vyrubova diaries", I think style in some degree correlates to "The End of Rasputin".
Maybe I am too much in to conspiracy theory, but if this is true - we have the answer to our question: "Why autopsy report is so different from Yussupov's  story?"

Pushkin Town History / post October 1917 revolution White Army

I don’t think story of the Romanoff family, as well Tsarskoye Selo, can exist without Russian White officers, who defend, Russia from Communists, and Lenin during 1917-1922th. This period, very controversial, even for Russians, when brother - fought brother.
The most interesting part, this period raised from both sides (white and reds) tremendous amount of folk songs and stories, and post USSR, nations taking a lot of pride to listen and be part of it.
So, I would like to share with AP community, this part of the "Russian soul".
