Feminine last names such as Brezin or Sokolov would only be possible for naturalized citizens who changed their last name, for the second and later generation of immigrants, or for wives of Russian immigrants (Renee Rostov). In Russia, the girls' last names would be Brezina and Sokolova. See more »

Weapon of mass destruction
19 July 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

If the defendant in this Law And Order episode had just done something like shoot or stab his victim, the circumstances might have elicited sympathy. Mark Ivanir was a Moscow policeman in New York to confront the captor of his daughter who brought her to the USA and turned her out as a prostitute. But he killed him with Ricin which as we know is a deadly chemical agent, a possible weapon of mass destruction. That didn't help his case at all.

That's the circumstances that Sam Waterston and Alana DeLa Garza have to deal with in their prosecution. Some more information is gathered and it makes Ivanir look less sympathetic but also Ivanir was left with really no good options.

A little diplomatic jousting is done with the Russian Embassy to get a key witness, also someone not terribly sympathetic. An interesting story of the post Communist Russia.
