Russia named after legendary soviet intelligence

Officers Gevorg and Gohar Vardanyan

The unique diamond kept in the Russian State Fund of Precious Metals and Precious Stones (Gokhran of Russia) under the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation has been named after legendary Soviet intelligence officer Armenian Gevorg Vardanyan and his wife Gohar.

The decision came on the occasion of the 95th anniversary of the Russian illegal intelligence. The diamond is one of the rare founds in the nature, considering its two-layer form.

Gevorg Vardanyan was primarily responsible for thwarting Operation Long Jump, concocted by Adolf Hitler, led by Otto Skorzeny, which was an attempt to assassinate leaders of ‘The Big Three’ at the Tehran conference in 1943.
