General Georgi Koskov - James Bond Wiki

Appears in:

The Living Daylights


Jeroen Krabbe

Attempted methods of killing Bond:

  • Sets Bond up for an intended assassination of General Pushkin.
  • Drugs and captures Bond and flies him to a Soviet airbase in Afghanistan to turn him in as Pushkin's assassin.
  • Smuggles Necros onto the military cargo plane to personally deal with Bond.

How he is dispatched:

At Brad Whittaker's Tangier HQ, he is arrested by Pushkin and his forces and likely executed afterwards.

Evil scheme:

  • Stages a defection to the West to plant suspicion on Pushkin, then stages his own "recapture" by Russian forces.
  • Absconds with Russian funds for arms.
  • Trades funds with Whittaker for arms for Russians, but also to purchase raw opium from Afghanis.
  • Opium to be processed for many times its original value to ensure Koskov's and Whittaker's fortunes.
  • Sets up his mistress as sniper during his defection, and engineers Bond as counter-sniper to ensure she is killed, covering his tracks.

How plans were foiled:

  • Bond makes a split-second decision to not shoot the female "sniper" during Koskov's defection, which provides him with a "lead" to uncovering what Koskov is really up to.
  • In Afghanistan, Bond hijacks the aircraft with opium, and manages to dump it all in his fight with Necros.
  • Bond, though outgunned, kills Whittaker by using his exploding key-chain to topple a statue of Wellington onto Whittaker.


Defining dialogue:

  • "I'm sorry, James. For you I have great affection, but we have an old saying: duty has no sweethearts."

Man did I dispise this piece of ****! First he set a woman up to get killed, then he tricks the good guys into doing his dirty work, and he has the nerve to live in the end. I really wished Bond had strangled him to death, or that I wished he would have died when his truck crashed into the plain. Now, I can't stand General Pushkin either, but man o man I hoped that Pushkin had Koskov executed
