Stalin's personal strategic intelligence

Stalin's activities in managing the state and its interaction in the foreign policy arena conceal many hidden mechanisms that he used so successfully. One of such mechanisms could be his personal strategic intelligence and counterintelligence, about which Vladimir Zhukhrai spoke a lot in his books and interviews, presenting himself as one of the leaders of this body.

There is practically no documentary evidence of this, such a structure hardly left behind any documents. You can treat Zhukhrai's statements in different ways, at least many of the facts he cites confirm the events that took place at that time and Stalin's tough struggle with his entourage, along with his desire to ensure the security and development of the country in a hostile environment, for which objective and impartial information. Perhaps Zhukhrai embellished something - not without this, but the logic of Stalin's actions was exactly as the author presents it.

Mentions about Stalin's "secret service" are quite common: some Russian historians of the special services deny its existence and consider Zhukhrai almost "the son of Lieutenant Schmidt", others - on the contrary, that such intelligence should have been and, most likely, existed since 1925 when Stalin, after the death of Lenin, began a struggle with his comrades-in-arms for power and the choice of a path for the country's further development.

Having become the general secretary, he, naturally, taking into account his experience of underground activities and the unfolding struggle against the opposition in the party, began to create structures accountable to him personally and carrying out only his instructions. It should not be forgotten that during the October Revolution he was one of the three parties (Dzerzhinsky, Stalin, Uritsky), which worked closely with the counterintelligence of the General Staff of the tsarist army to seize power in the country. These specialists, their connections and agents remained - they could be included in the structure of Stalin's personal intelligence and successfully work for the Soviet regime.

The structure worked in two directions: counterintelligence for all, without exception, the party and economic elite, including the members of the Politburo, in which there were far from sinless angels, and intelligence, for penetrating highly secret state secrets and relations between leaders of foreign countries. Information was necessary for understanding internal and world processes, true relationships and driving motives of various political and economic forces and for competently making certain state and political decisions. The task of Stalin's intelligence also included the study and regular coverage of the activities abroad of the most important and famous political figures in the world. Stalin transmitted the information he received, without indicating the source, to the NKVD and military intelligence for use in their work.

According to Zhukhrai's recollections, there were no secrets for this structure that she could not get or buy. The entire party and economic elite of the country was under surveillance around the clock, and all their "secrets" were known. The structure employed about 60 carefully selected unique specialists who knew several languages ​​and had knowledge in related specialties, as well as a huge network of agents and informants around the world. To accomplish the assigned tasks, the intelligence leaders possessed practically unlimited financial resources, money, currency, diamonds and gold. All this made it possible to have agents in the highest circles of various countries, including Japan, Germany and England.

The need for such intelligence was acute: it worked in parallel with the country's regular intelligence agencies, extracted and repeatedly checked the information obtained by all, and on the basis of the results of its activities, Stalin made final decisions. In such a structure, intellectuals of the highest class with analytical skills were supposed to work, and such people were carefully selected. They were ideological supporters of Stalin - it was impossible to outbid them.

Who was in charge of this intelligence, and in what way did it show itself?

Stalin's sons


Zhukhrai claims that General Alexander Dzhuga was the intelligence chief, and he was allegedly the illegitimate son of Stalin. Perhaps this is a collective image, since Stalin really had such sons. While in exile in 1909-1911 in Solvychegorsk, he cohabited with the landlady of an apartment, whose son Konstantin Kuzakov was later born, and in exile in 1914-1916 in Kureyka, Turukhansk region, he cohabited with 14-year-old Lydia Pereprygina, to whom he was also born son Alexander Davydov. Stalin promised the gendarmes to marry her when she came of age, but in 1916 he fled from exile and never returned.

Konstantin Kuzakov and Alexander Davydov really existed, but whether they were Stalin's children and whether they were involved in his personal intelligence, one can only assume. Some of Zhukhrai's contemporaries considered him the son of Stalin, but he always claimed that no one had told him about this, and his mother, a well-known doctor who served the highest echelons of power, did not say who his own father was. At least, Stalin unconditionally trusted Jugha and Zhukhrai, and he treated the latter very warmly and in a fatherly way.

Zhukhrai got into strategic intelligence in 1942, Stalin looked closely at him for three months, and then began to fully trust. In 1948, he appointed the capable young man as the first deputy of Jugha and head of the analytical department of intelligence and awarded the rank of major general. They appeared to Stalin in make-up, they were met by Poskrebyshev, taken to the leader, and they reported to him about the information they had obtained.

Relationship with the head of the MGB Abakumov


In his memoirs, Zhukhrai more than once dwells on the personality of Abakumov, who successfully led SMERSH during the war and then headed the Ministry of State Security.
He emphasizes his careerism, untidiness, desire to fabricate fake deeds on Soviet leaders and the military in the name of moving up the career ladder. General Serov, who, being Beria's deputy, constantly clashed with Abakumov over the methods of work, wrote about the same qualities of Abakumov in his diary. Stalin instructed Dzhuga and Zhukhrai to recheck the materials provided by the MGB and give his opinion.

In 1946-1948, Abakumov stubbornly strove to fabricate the "case of the marshals" by analogy with the "Tukhachevsky conspiracy" for his careerist goals. He was convinced of the existence of a military conspiracy in the country and the involvement of Marshal Zhukov in it, and also oversaw the "case of aviators" and "the case of sailors." The latter was charged by the commander of the Navy, Admiral Kuznetsov, of spying on England, on the basis of which Abakumov asked Stalin to authorize the arrest of the admiral.
by
Stalin instructed Dzhuga to sort out the "case of the sailors". After clarifying all the circumstances in the case on Kuznetsov's accusation of transferring documents for secret torpedoes to England during the war, Stalin was informed that there was no conspiracy, and all this was Abakumov's nonsense. The commander of the Navy admitted negligence, which led to the disclosure of classified information in a new arms, for which Kuznetsov was demoted in 1948.

Abakumov's activities to search for "conspiracies" led to the fact that in July 1951 he was arrested and himself accused of a Zionist conspiracy in the MGB. After Stalin's death, Khrushchev did not want to release Abakumov, who knew too much about the top of the Soviet rulers. The accusation was reclassified as falsification of the "Leningrad case" and was sentenced to death by the court in December 1954.

Aviators case


Abakumov started a case against the leaders aviation industry and the Air Force, accusing them in 1946 of sabotage and conspiracy to adopt aircraft with serious defects and a large marriage during the war. He reported to Stalin about the numerous plane crashes and deaths of pilots during all the years of the war. Shakhurin chased the indicators of the plan and produced low-quality products. The military turned a blind eye to this, and in the army, pilots died due to low-quality aircraft.

Minister Shakhurin and Air Force Commander Novikov were arrested, subjected to "active interrogation", and they pleaded guilty about supplying defective aircraft to the army. This led to the arrest of a number of aviation industry leaders and Air Force officers.

Abakumov convinced Stalin that this was a conspiracy, and they were engaged in sabotage, deliberately supplying low-quality aircraft to the army, and demanded their severe punishment. Stalin denied these accusations, since these people did a lot to win the war and could not engage in sabotage, and instructed Dzhuga to double-check Abakumov's data. The audit found that there was no conspiracy, and the existing practice of supplying the troops with low-quality products was a consequence of the fact that a large number of aircraft were required to the front, and they did not have time to produce them properly.

The court considered the "case of aviators" and for the release of low-quality products and concealment of these facts from the leaders of the state, in May 1946 the accused sentenced the accused to various terms of imprisonment, short for those times.

In connection with the "case of aviators" Malenkov was relieved of his post as the second secretary of the Central Committee and sent by Stalin on a long business trip to the periphery. Zhdanov became the second secretary of the Central Committee, who died suddenly in 1948, and this was the beginning of the "case of doctors." Stalin returned Malenkov to Moscow in 1948, making him the secretary of the Central Committee for personnel policy in the party and the state, despite the protest of Jugha, who contemptuously called Malenkov "Malanya" and claimed that he was a hidden anti-Soviet, who would still show himself.

The case of Marshal Zhukov


During the investigation into the "aviators' case" Abakumov reported to Stalin that the Air Force Commander Novikov addressed the leader with a letter in which he claimed that during the war they had anti-Soviet conversations with Zhukov, in which Zhukov criticized Stalin, stating that all operations during wars were designed by him, not by Stalin, and Stalin is jealous of his fame, and that Zhukov might lead a military conspiracy. General Kryukov, who was arrested and interrogated, was close to Zhukov and also asserted Zhukov's Bonapartist inclinations. Abakumov asked permission to arrest Zhukov, since he is a spy. Stalin rudely interrupted him and said that he knew Zhukov well - he was a politically illiterate person, in many ways just a boor, a big arrogant, but not a spy.

Abakumov read out the letters of the military, in which it was stated that Zhukov was so arrogant that he finally lost all control over himself, falling into anger, for no reason tears off the shoulder straps from the generals, humiliates them and insults them, calls them insulting nicknames, in some cases came to assault, and it became impossible to work with him.

Stalin instructed Dzhuga to figure out whether Abakumov had planned to embroil him with the leadership of the armed forces. After clarifying the essence of the case, Dzhuga, on whose command Zhukov's apartment had been tapped since 1942, reported to Stalin that Abakumov, out of careerist tricks, had started a case on the “Zhukov conspiracy”, which does not exist, and only the case of plundering trophy property by the military was being conducted, and Zhukov was awaiting arrest. He stressed that Zhukov has great services to the country, and he does not deserve criminal prosecution, and for his boorish attitude towards his subordinates, he should be demoted.

At an enlarged meeting of the Politburo in 1946, Stalin made an invitation to all the marshals and expressed his claims to Zhukov, the military leaders supported the leader. Zhukov was silent and did not make excuses, he was relieved of his post as deputy people's commissar of defense and transferred to the commander of the Odessa military district.

Stalin's disease


In December 1949, Stalin suffered a third stroke and a cerebral hemorrhage on his feet. The people closest to him began to notice that something was wrong with the leader - he became a completely different person and very suspicious.

And so little talkative, now he spoke only when absolutely necessary, very quietly and with great difficulty choosing his words. He stopped receiving visitors and reading official papers. He walked with great difficulty and had to lean on the walls. He did not even manage to deliver a response at the ceremonial meeting in honor of his seventieth birthday, silently sitting pale in the center of the presidium.

Once Stalin complained to Dzhuga that he was a sick and old man who had to retire long ago, but who was still forced to unravel all sorts of intrigues, fight traitors, eyewitnesses, careerists and embezzlers.

Companions of Stalin


At the end of August 1950, Dzhuga reported to Stalin about the plan for a large-scale secret war of the United States against the USSR, the implementation of which was to lead to the collapse of the USSR and the restoration of capitalism. This plan, elaborated in detail by the CIA, was received from Washington.

Dzhuga proposed to radically improve the work of the MGB: Abakumov is clearly not coping with the post of minister, in pursuit of "high-profile" cases, he discredited the state and the authorities, facilitating the work of the Western special services. He also expressed doubts about the activities of Stalin's associates, such as Beria, Malenkov, Mikoyan and Khrushchev, and suggested calling a party congress, renewing the Politburo, nominating new people to the leadership of the party and the country, and sending some old members of the Politburo to a well-deserved rest.

Around the individual members of the Politburo, stable groups of individuals connected by bonds of personal friendship and loyalty really began to form.

Around Malenkov were grouped the secretary of the Central Committee Kuznetsov, deputy chairmen of the Council of Ministers Kosygin, Tevosyan and Malyshev, as well as Marshal Rokossovsky, head of the department of administrative bodies of the Central Committee Ignatiev.

Around the member of the Politburo, Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers and Chairman of the State Planning Committee Voznesensky - Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the RSFSR Rodionov, workers of the Leningrad Party Organization Popkov, Kapustin, Lazutin, Turko, Mikheev and others.

Around the Politburo member, deputy chairman of the Council of Ministers Beria - his long-time "associates" Merkulov, Kobulov, Meshik, Dekanozov, removed from the MGB, as well as generals Goglidze and Tsanava, still working in the state security agencies.

Stalin instructed his strategic intelligence to closely monitor these groups and report to him regularly.

Molotov and the Pearl


Stalin's companion and friend Molotov began to arouse ever greater suspicion. Abakumov regularly reminded Stalin that since 1939, Molotov's wife, Polina Zhemchuzhina, allegedly had suspicious connections with anti-Soviet elements. She soon gave rise to her arrest, openly establishing friendly relations with Israeli Ambassador Golda Meir.

After several recorded meetings with the Israeli ambassador, who tried to conduct provocative work among the Jewish Soviet intelligentsia, Polina Zhemchuzhina was arrested on Stalin's orders in February 1949, and Golda Meir was expelled from the country. Stalin personally followed the course of the investigation into the case of Molotov's wife.

Stalin's hatred of Zhemchuzhina was associated with the death of Stalin's wife Nadezhda Alliluyeva, who suffers from a severe form of schizophrenia. He believed that Pearl was guilty of his wife's suicide, that it was her provocative "stories" about Stalin during a long last walk in the Kremlin with Nadezhda Alliluyeva on the eve of her suicide that pushed her to this tragic act.

However, no specific incriminating materials about her treacherous activities were received. Abakumov, through "active interrogations" of those arrested from Zhemchuzhina's inner circle, obtained evidence that Zhemchuzhina allegedly had nationalistic conversations with them. Dzhuga reported to Stalin that there were no incriminating materials against Zhemchuzhina, and she did not give any evidence confessing her guilt.

The high-profile open trial prepared by Abakumov in the case of "bourgeois nationalists" led by Polina Zhemchuzhina did not take place. The arrested "nationalists", led by Zhemchuzhina, were convicted by a special meeting of the Ministry of State Security, and they received prison terms.

The Leningrad case


In July 1949, Stalin's intelligence received a message from London that the second secretary of the Leningrad City Party Committee Kapustin, who was in England on a business trip, had allegedly been recruited by British intelligence. Kapustin was a close friend of the Secretary of the Central Committee Kuznetsov and the first secretary of the Leningrad Regional Committee and the City Party Committee Popkov.

Soon Kapustin was arrested on charges of espionage in favor of England, and during "active interrogation" not only admitted the fact of his recruitment, but also testified about the existence in Leningrad of an anti-Soviet group led by a member of the Politburo, Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers Voznesensky, Secretary of the Central Committee Kuznetsov, Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the RSFSR Rodionov and First Secretary of the Leningrad Regional Committee and the City Party Committee Popkov.

At this time, rumors circulated among the party activists that Stalin supposedly intended to appoint Kuznetsov as General Secretary of the Central Committee as his successors, and Voznesensky as Chairman of the Council of Ministers.

All of them had long been listening to the Jugha team, and he provided Stalin with recordings of the conversations of their drunken company. In this recording, Popkov said that Comrade Stalin was not feeling well and, it seemed, would soon retire, and it was necessary to think about who would replace him. Kapustin said that Voznesensky could become the Chairman of the Council of Ministers, and Popkov appointed Kuznetsov to the general secretary and offered a toast to the future leaders of the state. Stalin asked how Voznesensky and Kuznetsov behaved - they remained silent, but drank to the proposed toast.

Then Popkov suggested creating a Communist Party of the RSFSR, Kuznetsov supported this and added: "... and declare Leningrad the capital of the RSFSR." Having listened to this, Stalin thoughtfully said that they, most likely, wanted to pull the core out from under the union government. Dzhuga considered that all this was just drunken chatter, but Stalin reasonably noted that all the conspiracies in stories began with innocent drunken chatter.

For Stalin, suffering from suspicion, such a deal with his associates meant a lot, and they were all arrested. The proceedings lasted more than a year, and in September 1950 they all fully admitted their guilt in court and were sentenced to death by the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court. After a stroke, Stalin could no longer understand in detail the "Leningrad case". In the presence of Abakumov, he personally interrogated Voznesensky and Kuznetsov, and they confirmed their guilt. After that, the Leningrad party organization was defeated, and Stalin lost a group of his loyal comrades-in-arms, who did not prepare a conspiracy, but thoughtlessly expressed their opinions.

For a number of indirect signs, Stalin's personal intelligence acted very effectively, reaching the highest circles and behind-the-scenes forces inside the country and abroad. In this regard, Stalin thoroughly understood the mechanics of political events in the country and the world, and his actions were distinguished by exceptional efficiency.

Stalin's personal intelligence existed until his death, and then ... disappeared. Its employees went about their business: some became a writer, some a researcher, while, of course, not particularly dwelling on the turbulent past.

    Stalin's hatred of Zhemchuzhina was associated with the death of Stalin's wife Nadezhda Alliluyeva, who suffers from a severe form of schizophrenia.

    This is childish speculation that spreads constantly, immediately after the seizure of power by the Khrushchevs. Throwing mud at JV Stalin began with the XX Congress of the CPSU. Polina Zhemchuzhina was charged in the "JAC case", in which she was involved, no less than Mikhoels, Lazovsky and others. They were accused of collaborating with international transcontinental corporations, the Joint organization and OZET in creating the Crimean California. She was lucky that Stalin, out of respect for Molotov, treated her so gently.

      Stalin was generally a great humanist, this is absolutely no irony. He spared many people and very much in vain. The same Bandera and forest brothers, instead of being hanged on the very first aspen, were sent to the camps, from where they were then wholesale and rehabilitated by Khrushch-paskuda. Crimean Tatars, instead of being punished for almost universal betrayal, were just resettled. There were a lot of people to hang or shoot after the war, but Stalin regretted, did not want to take blood on himself, but in vain, probably.

          That's not the topic at all. More precisely in the subject, but not in the right place.
          Comparing Ahmed Khan Sultan with how many outright traitors there were among the Crimean Tatars, one can with the same success as comparing Normandy-Niemen and the total number of "free France" with the number of Frenchmen who served in the Wehrmacht ... Incomparable numbers !!! Suffice it to mention that the Reichstag in May 1945 was defended not so much by the Germans themselves, but mostly by the French from the SS Charlemagne division and the Danes from the SS Nordland division.

          So there is nothing to spread the exploits of ONE really OUTSTANDING person to the whole people, which in the OVERWEEL majority went over to the side of the Nazis. You probably haven't heard anything about the atrocities of the Crimean Tatars against Soviet soldiers and partisans ?!

          In general, people like you amaze me, when it is profitable for you to get rid of Stalin, you turn a saint into a great fornicator and vice versa, a weather vane in one word. But how would you not pay for it at one fine time. Are you not afraid of anything at all, neither God's judgment, nor human?

            Objectivity. Just simply. There were ups and downs.

            And again there is no need for the cult of personality, it was assessed by the Communist Party itself at the 20th Congress, and not by the liberals of the 90s.

            And we have a lesson for the future.

                The 20th Congress did not give any assessment. Khrushch just read the report and that's it. There was no discussion of the report, as provided for by the rules of any party meetings, plenums, conferences, congresses. Therefore, there was no assessment. By the way, the report is usually preliminarily discussed in the Polit Bureau, but there was no discussion of it either. Therefore, this report is vyser Khrushch and nothing more.

                And then a party discussion unfolded. And almost everyone supported.
                In Tiflis they twitched, but this is understandable.

                On the whole, all the “comrades-in-arms” crossed themselves and sighed. For everyone got sick.

                    Are you a participant in that discussion? Can you provide evidence for that discussion? Somehow I don’t remember such a discussion in the CPSU.

                    After the congress, the text of the report was sent to the primary party cells for discussion.
                    Well-known fact.
                    There were also critical speeches by other prominent figures.

                        - How did Malenkov feel about Stalin?


                        Malenkov at the July Plenum of the Central Committee:

                        “You should know, comrades, that the personality cult of Comrade Stalin in the daily practice of leadership took painful forms and dimensions, the methods of collective work were discarded, criticism and self-criticism in our top echelon was completely absent. We have no right to hide from you that such an ugly personality cult has led to the irrevocable nature of individual decisions, and in recent years has begun to cause serious damage to the leadership of the party and the country. "

                        Mikoyan spoke neither for nor against. However, during the congress, he made an anti-Stalinist speech (although he did not call Stalin by name), declaring the existence of a "personality cult"
                        Do you consider this person's opinion authoritative?

                        The closest ally. Who is the authority then?

                        Lieutenant General Sudoplatov on Bulganin as Minister of Defense

                        Well, let's listen to Sudoplatov: laughing

                        The motives for the criminal repressions of which the leadership of the country and the security organs are guilty were associated not only with the PERSONAL AMBITIONS of Stalin and other "leaders", but also with the struggle for power that was constantly going on inside their entourage. This struggle was always skillfully covered up with loud slogans - "struggle against deviations" in the ruling party of "accelerated construction of communism", "struggle against the enemies of the people", "struggle against cosmopolitans", "perestroika". And in the end, the victims of all these campaigns have always turned out to be millions of innocent people.

      But that's not the point. All the "unreliable" were evicted in connection with the Yalta "summit".
      It is not for us to deal with the policy of Stalin and Beria.
      One might think that no similar measures were taken against the Russians. The latest example: 1980 Moscow - "eviction for the 101st kilometer."

        You shouldn't feel sorry for them. But the work must be personal. And the point is not in humanity, but in the fact that we are still raking up the legacy of Stalin's national policy.

          Arzt. Where did the mountain "brothers" get help from, and who hid them? Communists during the day, nationalists at night. And all people in every village knew about it. Only after they lost their help did they give up. And then they killed everyone, even their own, so that there were no witnesses. So Stalin again did not shoot them, but sent them to the places where their fellow countrymen were. They did the same with other traitors. He himself appeared, so he realized and purified himself. Stalin believed in the word, he believed very much - he realized. But, what would Stalin, who gave advice on what he needs to do, the author turned it down. Even being at the top of the secret intelligence, no one knew everything that Stalin knew. And decisions were made by Stalin thinking hard. As a child, I knew one person who spoke all the languages ​​of Europe. He knew everything about fabrics, leathers, furs. He was an amazing person.

You might as well read the book "This was not reported." When, during the occupation of Kiev, the Gestapo suddenly began to arrest people who were left underground. Liaison with the partisans. Scouts from the General Staff and others. A special group from the Urals, whom no one knew, was sent to the Kiev region. They went out to some meetings about which few people knew and began to follow the headquarters of the Gestapo. We photographed everyone in civilian clothes who went there, Then we found out the appearance for German agents and also photographed. Everything was transferred to Moscow and there they found out that the secretary of the city party committee was betraying everyone by Jewish nationality. We wondered how it was if she had to evacuate with her family to Uzbekistan. We did a check. Her family was there, but Raya was not there. In general, she was captured and had to be delivered to a partisan detachment. But on the way they were found out and began to be pursued. When the Germans realized that they could not catch up with the scouts, a sniper shot Raisa and wounded another of the detachment. And that was in the summer of 1941. That's it.

    I already thought that Zhemchugova would now be charged with blood libel and accused of cannibalism. This sounds no more outlandish than accusing Mikhoels' Stalinist slander comrades of working for the Joint, in principle absolutely not influential at that time. Then no one knew whether Israel would take place or all the Zionists would be expelled from Palestine by the Arabs, as now the Turks and Azerbaijanis have expelled the Armenians from the conquered regions of Karabakh ..

    The structure employed about 60 carefully selected unique specialistswho knew several languages ​​and had knowledge in related specialties, as well as huge network of agents and informants around the world... To accomplish the assigned tasks, the intelligence leaders possessed practically unlimited financial resources, money, currency, diamonds and gold. All this made it possible to have agents in the highest circles of various countries, including Japan, Germany and England.

    Only 60 people? A huge network of agents and informants (the same thing)? How and who recruited them? How did they stay in touch: conspiratorial meetings, channels of information transfer?
    For these events, personnel intelligence officers are needed (illegal immigrants or undercover work in diplomatic missions). The work of an intelligence officer is operational, in other words, they are the same operatives as employees of services whose powers include operational-search activities. Depending on the supervised activity (direction of obtaining information), the operative studies (checks) the candidates and forms his own agent apparatus (network of informants), with whom it is necessary to hold regular meetings to exchange information (using different methods).
    The information received by the center is analyzed (maybe 60 people were analysts), the conclusions are sent to the head.
    The information received should be recorded and submitted. These are also people, the office (secret).
    Operational activities are subject to funding, accounting and control of spent funds (again, people).
    And so on ...

    The need for such intelligence was acute: it worked in parallel with the country's full-time intelligence agencies, extracted and repeatedly checked the information obtained by everyone, and based on the results of its activities, Stalin made final decisions. In such a structure intellectuals of the highest class with analytical skills had to work, and such people were carefully selected. They were ideological supporters of Stalin - it was impossible to outbid them.

    An analyst is not yet an illegal intelligence agent (operative).
    Regarding the inability to outbid - everything has its price.
    The grounds for recruitment are:
    - compromising evidence;
    - ideological considerations;
    - personal motives (revenge, self-interest).

    There is practically no documentary evidence of this, such a structure hardly left behind any documents.
    No documents means there was no structure, because it is the documents that are the result of the work of such organizations.

    The structure worked in two directions: counterintelligence for all, without exception, the party and economic elite and intelligence - for penetration into top secret state secrets
    The author, alas, does not know that the NKVD existed, which was engaged in this and about which there are a lot of documents.
    he lived with 14-year-old Lydia Pereprygina, who also had a son, Alexander Davydov.
    Konstantin Kuzakov and Alexander Davydov really existed, but were they Stalin's children and were they involved in his personal intelligence,

    with a 14 year old orphan girl ........ Yeah ..
    ... Davydov's kinship was confirmed by genetic testing. Lived a modest but dignified life, front-line soldier

    The accusation was reclassified as falsification of the "Leningrad case" and was sentenced to death by the court in December 1954.

    That is, Stalin shot the Leningra party members incorrectly? Although, if it was established by the anti-Stalinist Khrushchev, then it is correct. On the other hand, Avakumov was arrested by Stalin ...

    Regardless of the strains and distortions in the interpretation of the author of political intrigues and intrigues in the top leadership of the USSR of those years, I consider it necessary to note that there is no connection with the arrest of Zhemchuzhina, the departure of Golda Mabovich (her husband's surname is Meir, she will take only in 1956) from Moscow had. Moreover, there could be no talk of any expulsion of the ambassador. The expulsion of an ambassador is generally a matter of the highest political importance and, as a rule, means a break in political relations.
    It's much easier. On February 14, 1949, the Israeli Knesset of the 1st convocation began its work, where Mabovich, who ran for the elections, received a seat from the Mapai party and with him the portfolio of the Minister of Labor and Social Security. She will hold this position until June 1956, until her appointment as Israel's Minister of Foreign Affairs.

    A banknote of 10 shekels issued in 000.
    Obverse: The portrait of Golda Meir, a symbolic image of a tree whose branches are intertwined in the form of the six-pointed Star of David against the background of the menorah - the coat of arms of Israel; text "10 shekels" and "Bank of Israel" in Hebrew. Microtext in Hebrew: "Let my people go!" (Hebrew שלח את עמי!, Shlah et amí!) - a phrase from the Book of Exodus, in which Moses demanded that Pharaoh free the Jews from Egyptian slavery.

    Reverse: A reproduction of a photograph of Golda Meir's meeting with Muscovites in September 1948; Hebrew text "Let my people go!" and Bank of Israel in Hebrew, English and Arabic.

    Mentions about Stalin's "secret service" are quite common: some Russian historians of the special services deny its existence and consider Zhukhrai almost "the son of Lieutenant Schmidt", others - on the contrary, that such intelligence should have been and, most likely, existed since 1925 ,

    If the author himself was not sure or did not have what he describes, then the article should be referred to "Opinions" and not "History".
    Beria's son does not report anything about this service in his memoirs.

    According to Zhukhrai's recollections, there were no secrets for this structure that she could not get or buy. The entire party and economic elite of the country was under surveillance around the clock, and all their "secrets" were known. The structure employed about 60 carefully selected unique specialists who knew several languages ​​and had knowledge in related specialties, as well as a huge network of agents and informants around the world.

    Twelve generals were in charge of 60 specialists - I don't believe it.
    And in general, if someone decides to carefully study the materials of the MK about this Zhukhrai, they will laugh heartily at the fantasies of this person:
    I ended up at the front as a minor on Stalin's personal instructions; they didn’t take me to the “initial”, because there was nothing to teach me - I already flew the best. Vasily Stalin was a fighter, and I was a bomber. Dive bomber. In 44, after being wounded by shrapnel, they pulled me out of Malaya Zemlya and called me to the Kremlin, where our best workers taught according to an individual program. My friend was Aelita, a colonel of state security; she worked in the Stalinist guard for seven years. She's still alive, by the way. A written beauty, a lovely creature - when I saw her for the first time in 47, in the Green Grove in Sochi, I was amazed that such women exist in the world. And Sasha Dzhuga also joked: "Oh, what exhibits are found here!"

    At 22, at 48, I was appointed head of the analytical service of Stalin's counterintelligence. I was a major general - not by merit, but by title. I had 11 generals under my command. Stalin trusted me completely. The first three months I looked closely, and then signed documents after me without reading. Once there was such a moment: I was sitting and working, and Stalin came in. He says: "You write, and I will stay here." He spent two hours beside me, was silent, then patted me on the back and left. His accent was strong. Something like this ... (Demonstrates.) Looks like?

    Even Rezun never dreamed of such a cranberry. A homegrown brat, his son suddenly turns out to be a genius of the special services. For three whole months Stalin has been eyeing him and bam - the chief intelligence officer.
    Further pearls are more beautiful than each other: the conspirator Rokossovsky (Polish Minister of Defense), sitting under double control, and also the only one who did not throw feces at the Leader when it was necessary and fashionable. blacksmiths - who gave the British during the war data on the German torpedo. Is this a new weapon? Probably ours? Is Kosygin a conspirator? Stalin personally did not allow Kosyga to be recorded in the Leningrad affair .... yes, in general, there is nothing to say. The boring truth is always not interesting, but here such a bogeyman was thrown, you can gather up for a three-volume book.

    From 1934 to 1952, a rather muddy structure existed as a party control commission under the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks) and then under the Central Committee of the CPSU. There is not a lot of research on this topic for a number of reasons. It can be assumed that a powerful system-analytical center existed within the CCP. But just admit ... Until the documents come up. It is unlikely that they are stored in RGASPI

      The Central Control Commission of the RCP (b), VKP (b), the CPSU (abbreviated to the Central Control Commission) - the supreme control body of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in 1920-1934. and in 1990-1991.
      In 1934-1952. - instead of the Central Control Commission, there was a Party Control Commission under the Central Committee of the CPSU (b),
      In 1952-1990. - The Party Control Committee under the Central Committee of the CPSU.
      In 1962-1965. - The Committee of Party and State Control of the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Council of Ministers of the USSR - the CPC under the Central Committee of the CPSU and the Committee of State Control of the Council of Ministers of the USSR merged.

        It's clear. There were no branch ministries - they were replaced by economic councils. Just this period.

    Jug's apparent consonance
    and Dzhugashvili surprises nobody? In addition to Dzhuga, I met the name Lavrov in literature - as the head of Stalin's personal intelligence service. I suspect that the employees of this service later moved to the Special Department of the Central Committee of the CPSU, which at some time was headed by K.U. Chernenko. In general, the topic is very interesting, but I think that it will be "closed" for a long time.

      It's a dark matter. Everything is on the author's conscience. But as a curious version

      There is nothing dark, but there is just a set of fantasies of an unhealthy man named Zhukhrai, who heard something from someone and decided that he could calmly concoct his story, which, under a veil of secrecy, presented to the trusting public.
      Even General F.I. Golikov, having extensive experience of service in the Red Army, and heading the RU General Staff in 1940, was not prepared for such a responsible job as the leadership of the intelligence structure of one of the security agencies. And here some snotty "nugget" decided to head an intelligence structure to which all the country's intelligence services would be subordinate. In general, everything that Zhukhrai writes is utter nonsense, and it is a pity that there are people who believe in this nonsense.
      Remember "General Dima" and what came of this shot, but it was a time of troubles, which simply could not exist under Stalin.

    How can you believe this nonsense and nonsense. Indeed, Stalin trusted the young and daring. Stalin's commissars and ministers thundered very young:
    Tevosyan, Ustinov, Parshin, Vannikov, Malyshev, Kosygin. And the constructors
    Yakovlev, Ilyushin, Lavochkin ...
    But these people proved themselves before getting to such posts and after Stalin's death they worked for the good of the USSR. And this is some kind of swindler who is talking nonsense.

    I read up to the phrase: "There is practically no documentary evidence of this"

    Yes, there is no documentary evidence and hardly ever will be. A set of fables and nonsense. This information has been circulating in the press for 20 years, no less. And the "first sign" of information of this kind was the book "The Leader's Privy Counselor" well-known in the 90s.
    In fact, the history of intelligence services is a gigantic and interesting layer of history, but alas. The specificity is such that we will learn a lot in decades. More than 60 years have passed here and there is nothing besides these "fairy tales"

    Quote: Lynx2000
    Only 60 people? A huge network of agents and informants (the same thing)? How and who recruited them? How did they stay in touch: conspiratorial meetings, channels of information transfer?
    For these events, personnel intelligence officers are needed (illegal immigrants or undercover work in diplomatic missions). The work of an intelligence officer is operational, in other words, they are the same operatives as employees of services whose powers include operational-search activities. Depending on the supervised activity (direction of obtaining information), the operative studies (checks) the candidates and forms his own agent apparatus (network of informants), with whom it is necessary to hold regular meetings to exchange information (using different methods).
    The information received by the center is analyzed (maybe 60 people were analysts), the conclusions are sent to the head.
    The information received should be recorded and submitted. These are also people, the office (secret).
    Operational activities are subject to funding, accounting and control of spent funds (again, people).
    And so on..

    This is the biggest disadvantage and "weak link" in stories about "Stalin's personal intelligence".

    Quote: kalibr
    It would be nice to support such materials with links to documents. Anything. Plus a list of used literature ... And so all this is fiction, no more!

    Dear Vyacheslav. There are no documents, even indirect ones. There are specialized resources where the history of the Soviet special services is considered, in which you can read a lot that has never been published before, the structure by year, the leaders, including the head of the department. But even there, nothing close is visible. Although even such a structure as the "Information Committee" can be read

    There was no reconnaissance, IN GENERAL, neither strategic nor tactical. Dzhugashvili interrupted it back in the 30s. Otherwise, the troops before the war would not have been driven into various Belostotsky ledges, where it was easy for the Germans to surround and destroy them.

    Perhaps Stalin had "Strategic Intelligence", but by the way Comrade Stalin graduated ... it did not justify itself, a muddy article, a set of fabrications and rumors, with attempts at readability.
