Cigarette Case Weapon / Photographic Timeline

 

A cigarette case provided an excellent cover for this weapon, surrendered by KGB assassin Nikolai Khokhlov when he defected to West Germany in 1954. The device fired hollow-point bullets filled with poison through the false cigarettes at the opening of the case. 

Khokhlov, sent to assassinate anti-Soviet emigre Georgi Sergeyvich Okolovich, defected rather than carry out his mission.
