From ‘the mother of lies’ to ‘the worst thing in the world’: How the KGB became the worst thing to ever happen to us
From ‘The Mother of Lies’ to the worst idea in the history of humanity, this is the first in a series of articles that will look at the life and work of the KGB, from its creation to its fall.
The KGB was founded in 1946 by Nikolai Gromyko as the successor of the Soviet intelligence service, the SVR, and the KGB was the Soviet successor to the KGB.
It had no formal structure, but was created as a loose confederation of agencies within the KGB that did not adhere to formal organisational structures.
In theory, the KGB did not have formalised functions but its role was to provide information to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and other intelligence agencies.
The CIA operated under a set of guidelines which were meant to prevent a breakaway faction from forming.
These guidelines, which were codenamed “KGB Code 1”, were a set in which the CIA’s work was not to be questioned but to be carried out.
But in practice, it was the KGB who would determine which documents were to be released and which were not.
These rules were written down in the 1950s and were to prevent any deviation from the official version of events.
The rules were later revised and codified as “Kgb Code 2” which became codenipped as “Code 1” and “Code 2” and became codified in 1972 as “The Secret Protocols”.
In early 1946, the first of many meetings took place between Gromykov and former Soviet intelligence officer Aleksandr Aleksanderovich Fyodorovich Pokrovsky.
This was the first meeting between Gromkov and Fyod.
Gromykos initial idea for the KGB involved the creation of an “information wing” to be called the Directorate of the New Intellectuals (NKIT), headed by Yuri Andropov.
Gromkos idea was to create a network of “fascists” who would be loyal to the USSR and would spread propaganda to other countries, while also working on their own projects.
This would allow them to control the world.
Gomrosk’s original concept was for NKIT to have a “state of the mind” which would allow it to “understand the enemy and know how to deal with it”, but was also to provide them with the tools to spread propaganda and discredit other countries.
The Directorate of NKIT was created and headed by Aleksandra Komarov, who was born in 1926 in the village of Yashuvay in the Urals region.
Komarov’s father was a journalist who died when she was a child and her mother was a lawyer.
The family fled the Soviet Union when Komarov was nine years old and settled in the Soviet capital, Moscow.
At the age of 16 she became the secretary of the Cheka, an anti-Soviet intelligence agency that was responsible for repression against the political opposition in the USSR.
In 1946, she joined the Chekist Party, an elite group of young members who were members of the Communist Party and later became the Soviet secret police.
At that time, the Communist party was a group of communist groups and the Chekas were the KGB’s paramilitary wing.
The Chekists were not officially part of the USSR at the time but were allowed to remain members of their group by being allowed to stay on the fringes of the party.
In 1949, Komarov joined the Red Army and became a soldier.
In her later life, she was also a member of the First Party of Ukraine, an armed resistance group which fought against the Soviet government.
Komarcas relationship with the Red Guards was fraught with conflict.
After she joined, she became one of their most dedicated members.
Komarras loyalty to the Chekos and loyalty to Stalin was so great that she was given the rank of brigadier general, which she held until the death of Stalin in 1953.
She was later awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
After the death, she wrote a memoir, “The War for the Revolution”.
Komarov joined up in the Red Guard in 1949, but her relationship with them deteriorated rapidly.
In a book she wrote in 1952, she detailed how she and her colleagues had “a lot of difficulties and difficulties of our own” but were unable to bring any other comrades into the fight against the Bolsheviks.
In an interview published in 2004, Komarrases husband, Aleksandrov Khodorkovsky, described her as a “troubled person” who “did not deserve to be alive”.
During the Cold War, the relationship between Komarov and the Red guards was extremely volatile.
Komarids relationship with Gromyakov, who at that time was head of the NKIT, became so close that Komarov would later write a memoir in which she accused Gromyov of having a hand in the creation and then killing of a Russian scientist in 1953,
