Nice for solving.
The given solution distorts the truth.
1...Sa3 with dualistic mate (easy removable).
1...Rc3 2.Sxc3+ is also a variation.
1...Rxg4 2.Sd5!-e3 has 3 threats which all can be defended only by 2...Bd4/Bd5, so these moves should be noted in the solution and not the move which allows the mate from threat.

Thanks Nikola. You are right of course. I didnt notice the dual mates as there is no dual after 2...Re3. (Of course easily removed by addition of black pawn a3). Incidentally black Sh7 and WPf6 can both be replaced by BPs h7 & g7. But perhaps that is a comoser's choice. (?)
