Igor talks about what it was like to work for Epstein:

 

He was always polite. Always a nice person, basically. He’s always smiling.

I recall Igor having a Wikipedia page. 

 

My memory must be mistaken. Because he has no Wikipedia page now.

He did have a small wiki page previously.  I was able to find it using wayback machine

Blast from the past. Always loved Zignoviev, that dude was a total badass. Shamrock rocked his world with that double leg slam, but that was more "fluke" than anything. Man I miss old school NHB fights.

Well, that was a bad idea for him to do this interview, wasn't it? Nothing to gain for him but major trouble.

Look how scared Igor is, even after the dude is dead:

 

NYMAG:

You told me he would get phone calls the night before and eight o’clock the police are going to come. He would get a heads up from local police.

[Silence.]

 

NYMAG:

You told me that, Igor. Want me to read the quote?


IGOR:

Well, you can read whatever you want right now. Don’t just — you can put yourself in big trouble.

 

NYMAG:

You said: “He always do something wrong. There was some nights in question. There was at home arrest and police, before they come to the house, they call him and tell him they coming in at eight o’clock in the morning. It’s all corruption you know. It’s all bullshit.”

 

IGOR: Listen, don’t put yourself in trouble. Seriously.

 

NYMAG:

We talked about this. 

 

IGOR:

I understand we got this.

 

NYMAG:

I’m telling you to give you a chance to remember because we talked about this stuff. I know it’s hard. I don’t know what you mean about “put myself in trouble.”

 

IGOR:

Let that go. Seriously. Let that go.

 

NYMAG:

Why is it so important? Are you worried about the local cops?

 

IGOR:

Listen, you’re really smart and I’m not going to offer that over the phone right now, okay? You’re really smart. You have no idea. Please!

 

NYMAG:

What do you mean by that?

 

IGOR:

I can’t explain you. I can’t explain you over the phone any of this.

NYMAG:

You said that last time. And we didn’t talk for years. You can tell the world who this guy was. You were with him for a long time. You know what I mean?

[Silence.]

 

NYMAG:

I totally understand that you think he could have had help committing suicide. 

 

IGOR:

First of all, I have to go right now. I have another client.

 

NYMAG:

Still training people?


IGOR:

Yes. But just be careful. I’m not kidding.

 

MYMAG:

What’s your email so I can send you —

 

IGOR:

Don’t do any kind of that stuff. Just don’t play it. Seriously.

 

MYMAG:

Can you tell me why?

 

IGOR:

I can’t. I can’t.

 

MYMAG:

May I ask you one more question? 

 

IGOR:

Go ahead.

 

NYMAG:

Have you been talking to anyone in the government, the FBI? Have they come to you?


IGOR:

[Long pause] Um. Great talking to you. Seriously. We talk later.

Mario is pure class. That was the first and only time I've seen him post here. Had nothing but good things to say about Igor.
