Background Edit

Grigori Bulganov was a colonel in the Federal Security Service (FSB).

Bulganov had been a member of the KGB. When the KGB was reorganized into the FSB and Foreign Intelligence Service, he decided to resign but was convinced by his superiors to stay and help turn the FSB into a professional service. He stayed, but the FSB decayed. He supplemented his government income by providing information to Ivan Kharkov's financial empire about threats to its operations.

Bulganov was abducted in England and taken to Russia, where he ended up in the custody of Ivan Kharkov at Kharkov's dacha. He was severely beaten. He died because he put himself in between Kharkov and Chiara Zolli, whom Kharkov was attempting to shoot.
