Former Soviet Attorney Exposes Shocking Truth about life under Soviet Fascism

Sarasota FL – WEBWIRE

This is a brave account of a citizen who dared to question her government’s systematic repression of her people.

Author Simona Pipko presents a sharp and detailed look at the most unknown aspects of life in Russia in her eye opening book “Baltic Winds: Testimony of a Soviet Attorney.” The book embodies a big panorama of life in Russia. If a movie “Doctor Zhivago” illustrated Russia at the time of Socialist Revolution of 1917, “Baltic Winds” shows a result- Socialist Russia hundred years later. The autopsy of Socialism, built by Joseph Stalin, successfully preserved and operating now in 21st century.

“‘Baltic Winds’ is a heartfelt story of my life, lives of my children and clients, my friends and many others; sad, tragic and brutal. Practicing for 25 years as a defense attorney in former the Soviet Union, I became a representative of the system and its victim. It is my first-hand experience that reveals the rarely spoken bitter reality of every-day life behind the ‘Iron Curtain’ of Socialism, which is still unknown by the majority of Americans.” Spanning the five decades between 1950 and the 2000 “Baltic Winds” displays the values, struggles and state of mind of  the characters on two continents, from Leningrad to Rome, and finally to New York.

“Cunningly crafted brainwashing mechanism of the Soviet government was changing the consciousness of millions, my husband, one of the numbered best attorneys of the country, became one of the converted. Our ideologies were conflicting profoundly.  Loud and bitter arguments began to accompany our daily life.”

“While practicing law in the Soviet courts my illusions had gradually disappeared and the lawless country with its incredible corruption from top to bottom, appeared naked before my eyes. We lived inside a gigantic network of falsehood.” The book reveals also a breathtaking story of the captured American pilots imprisoned in Gulag, discussions on terrorism, North Korea and Iraq.

“The grievances of my clients echoed a gloomy picture within all of Russia. I witnessed so many human tragedies…Anna Novak and her daughter left a mark in my heart… Life of two generations of women, trapped in the net of Soviet bureaucracy…Rape, domestic violence, murder. Anna’s story is a dark reality of millions, living under Socialism today.”

“…I left my country, successful career, irreplaceable friends, husband and beloved daughter, immigrating with my son to America…”

“Baltic Winds: Testimony of a Soviet Attorney” is one of Pipko’s two books that will appear at the upcoming 2017 Book Expo America on June 1 to 3, 2017. Her other book is “What is Happening to America? The Hidden Truth of Global Destruction.”
