Modin, Yuri Ivanovich

(1923– )
   One of the most successful Soviet intelligence case officers, Modin ran many important British agents in London during the late 1940s, including Guy Burgess and Donald Maclean. In 1951 Modin stage-managed Burgess and Maclean’s escape and defection to the Soviet Union. Following his success in Great Britain, Modin returned to Moscow, where he served on the faculty of the KGB’s Andropov Institute.
