In 2015, Bill Browder published Red Notice – purportedly a true story about his experience in Russia between 1996 and 2005. Upon closer scrutiny however, his story doesn’t add up and demonstrably fails to stand up in a court of law. Nonetheless, on the dubious strength of that story, Browder has been able to lobby the U.S. Congress to pass the Magnitsky Act in 2012 which needlessly damaged the relations between the U.S. and Russia. Where he failed in courts of law, however, his campaign of relentless demonization of Russia and of Vladimir Putin has been successful in the court of public opinion in the West. As humanity finds itself on the precipice of yet another great war, what we need are bridges of mutual understanding and constructive engagement, not demonization. This book’s modest hope is to contribute to the construction of those bridges.


“I consider [this] book as a must read for any person trying to understand modern Russia and where the new Cold War with Russia came from. … Krainer offers us the truth and truly shows us how deep the rabbit hole goes. … Get the book, read it, and then give it to your friends. This is one of the most important books to have come out in the recent years (and an excellent read too!).” —The Saker

“True to form, Alex brings to life the shenanigans and the deception of those who have gone out of their way to stay in the shadows, in this gripping true-life-detective non-fiction thriller.” —Daniel Estulin, author of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group

“Krainer’s book is an indispensable contribution to understanding the connection between the looting of Russia during the disastrous ‘shock therapy’ of the Yeltsin years, and the dangerous anti-Russian provocations of today. His insight into the duplicitous role of Bill Browder provides compelling evidence of how unscrupulous greed can lead to much larger crimes.” —Harley Schlanger, Schiller Institute

“If there were a competition for the most significant contribution to steer mass anti-Russian hysteria leading to the new Cold war, Bill Browder would certainly qualify for a prize. The sad irony is that he achieved this dubious result using the money stolen from Russia. This is why Alex Krainer’s book is extremely important not only for the process of digging out the truth from the avalanches of lies but for the process of restoring normal Russia-West relations for the benefits of both sides.” —Edward Lozansky, President of the American University in Moscow

“[Grand Deception] is a courageous act in this world of profound slander. Like a ray of light, it breaks through the thick layers of lies that have for years been accumulated by people driven by fear to stand trial for their actions. … a breath of fresh air that everyone in the West needs. Otherwise there will be trouble.” —Natalia Veselnitskaya, lawyer

“[Grand Deception] will be very influential and pivotal in the process of exposing one of the century’s biggest hoaxes.” —Andrei Nekrasov, writer and director of The Magnitsky Act – Behind the Scenes

“Absolutely monumental work.” —Roman Latkovic, author and filmmaker
