No, not by the author of the book, but by an author of the video.

The images in the video coincide with those described by the author of the book.

Word to word? If I remember the book correctly the war initiation scene was not even there.

Word for word? They're images.

Do they directly reflect the scenes, depicted in the book? Including details I have specifically mentioned (words on the radio, ruined state of pre war Moscow, MVD guys with AK and so on)?

Yes. Word for word.

The scenes were depicted with such accuracy that I was moved to tears.

May you be so kind as to point out the exact scene, with all the small detailed that I have mentioned there?
Or do you refer to the "spirit of the book", which you believe the video accurateness represents.

This said the book itself has many factual mistakes - for example absence of blast doors on the Paveletskaya station, which are there in reality.

Also the blast doors in metro are closed prior sounding the air raid alarm, as per the civil defense instructions.

Sorry, but there is the additional capacity that would be used by the elite.
