Born by Revolution (Rozhdyonnaya revolyutsiey) is a Soviet made for TV historical films series, released in 1974-1977, directed by Grigori Kokhan and based on the novel "Povest ob ugolovnom rozyske" ("A Tale of Criminal Investigations Department") by Aleksey Nagorny and Geliy Ryabov. The series depicts the history of Soviet Ugolovny Rozysk (criminal police) from 1917 to 1970s, seen through the eyes of Nikolay Fomich Kondratyev (Evgeniy Zharikov).
The second film Assault (Napadenie) is set in 1919 in Moscow where Nikolay Kondratyev is temporary sent from Petrograd. Together with his colleagues, Kondratyev investigates the robbery of cash delivery car. During the events of Napadenie Kondratyev meets his future wife Maria Korablyova.
