A report by Mischa Scorer
Few initials in modern times have more sinister or frightening connotations than those three letters: KGB.
For the KGB is not just the Soviet intelligence service, it is a vast secret police apparatus penetrating every aspect of Soviet life. As a result of its activities there are some 10,000 political and religious prisoners in Russia at the moment.
The organisation and inner workings of the KGB are highly secret and little known to the public. To compile this two-part report mischa SCORER spent nine months travelling throughout the world, talking to scores of people with first-hand experience of the KGB -both victims of its attentions and former officers who have defected to the West. Parti
What is the history of the KGB? How has it come to be the powerful machine it is today? What can be found out about its structure -how is it organised? What sort of man is today's KGB officer?
The way the KGB operates as a secret police force in the Soviet Union. How does it keep such tight control over a population of 250 million? What methods does it use against political and religious dissenters - ordinary men and women who dare to express their disagreement with the regime? Does it still use violence in interrogation? Are there legal constraints on its actions, or is the KGB a law unto itself?
