  fredthebear: Neat combo starting with 32.Nxh6+. White goes to some effort to pick up the pawn and the exchange. 35.Qh3+ was quite necessary in the sequence before grabbing the loose rook. Later, White makes use of the half-open h-file for his back rank mating combination.

Kotov was a fine tactician!
