Mikhail Baryshnikov
Posts  1 - 1  of  1
July 1974 I went out to a disco with a friend - we met a couple of guys and went back to their place - one of them said he was a Russian ballet dancer who had just defected (the night before)and his name was Mikhail but we could call him Mike.

My friend and I didn't believe him - but he did a dance move down the hall and just seem to float in the air, very graceful.

I was in the army at the time - and when they were out of the room I phoned the army mess - his friend "Chico" put a gun to my head and asked who I was talking to, then he took the phone from me and talked to the guy at the mess.

I want to know, after he defected in Toronto did they hide him in Vancouver - or were these guys just decoys -

Hope you have an answer, this has been bugging me for a long time.
