In May 1945, the Red Army finished off the Third Reich, but peace did not come for all Soviet citizens. For another 10 years, our military, border guards, employees of state security agencies and the police had to fight the Bandera underground.

Nationalist underground


Soviet power in Western Ukraine was opposed by a well-organized and extensive network of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army of the OUN-UPA, better known to the people as Bandera. The backbone of the OUN (OUN - Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists) were legionnaires of the disbanded nationalist battalions, the defeated SS division "Galicia" and punitive, police detachments. Many nationalist cadres were trained in German intelligence schools.

The constant number of the UPA, according to various estimates, ranged from 25 to 100 thousand people. The bandit underground was well armed with German and Soviet weapons, had large reserves. A clear organization was observed: the groups "North", "West" and "South", in each group 3-4 kurens, one kuren included 2-4 hundreds. A hundred consisted of 3-4 chots (platoons), and they were from swarms - 10-12 fighters. It had its own security service, intelligence, prosecutor's office, investigative apparatus and prisons.

At the first stage, the UPA even tried to give battle to the Red Army. The collection of documents "Internal troops in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945" noted:

“Initially, the big UPA gangs themselves challenged us. Having strengthened in advance at advantageous lines, they imposed a battle. In the forests on the Kremenets Upland, the bandits created a system of defensive structures: trenches, dugouts, blockages, etc.

In a battle with Bandera, the commander of the 1st Ukrainian Front, N. Vatutin, was mortally wounded.

The struggle was complicated by the fact that the nationalist underground was supported by external forces. First, Nazi Germany helped Bandera, then England and the United States, which waged a cold war against the USSR. Emissaries, money, ammunition, etc. were thrown into the forests of Western Ukraine from the air. In the “war after the war” in 1945-1955, 25 thousand military men, NKVD soldiers and policemen, 32 thousand people from among the Soviet party activists, died.

"Bunker War"


By the beginning of 1945, Ukrainian bandit formations began to avoid direct clashes, switching to new tactics ("National heroes" of Ukraine - Hitler's accomplices, terrorists and murderers), trying to hide as deeply as possible and wage a "bunker war".

All gang members had pseudonyms, they kept in touch with each other only through trusted liaisons. As a rule, "lads" from different divisions did not know each other. The system of underground caches ("kryivki"), which began to be prepared as early as 1944, was actively used. As one of the instructions of the OUN stated:

“... every underground worker must know the rules of conspiracy, like a soldier - the charter of field service. The underground worker must live underground.”

By 1950, a system of underground caches existed throughout Western Ukraine. These were warehouses, radio stations, printing houses, barracks and arsenals. They were built like dugouts, but they were well camouflaged.

The entrances to the shelters were arranged under stumps, young trees, which were specially planted. Hide ventilation. In the settlements, the entrances were masked with dog kennels, haystacks, garbage, even graves and wells. In the book “SMERSH against Bandera. War after the war ”one of these caches was described as follows:

“At the top of the well, made of an oak frame, stood a gate with a wound chain and a bucket. Somewhere at the level of five meters to the water in the shaft, a disguised door was made from the crowns of the well. Behind it was a corridor with two disguised bunker rooms. One was intended for the radio operator, members of the detachment and the dining room. The other is for leadership and meetings. They went down to the caches on a bucket, the one who was on duty opened the door. A trusted fellow villager lowered the Bandera people.

It was difficult to fight the "bunkers" of Bandera. But over time, they found control over them. We used specially trained dogs, long probes. In winter, at sunrise and sunset, ventilation could be detected.

OUN members often did not surrender. They entered the last battle or committed suicide. The leader of the group killed his people, then himself. Therefore, caches began to be taken with the help of gas grenades. Later, during the assault on such shelters, they began to use a special drug "Typhoon" - an instant sleeping pill, without side effects.

New tactics for fighting gangs


It became clear to the Soviet authorities that in the fight against the OUN-UPA it was no longer possible to conduct only military operations. The blockade, combing the forests with the use of large contingents of internal troops (VV), brought success in the fight against large gangs of Ukrainian nationalists. Small groups of OUN members infiltrated through the barriers, mixed with the civilian population, hid in well-camouflaged "bunkers", or went to other areas. The Nazis turned mainly to terror and sabotage, while political activists went deep underground in order to save their cadres. Military operations ceased to be effective, forces and resources were idle.

Therefore, the Soviet authorities switched to combined methods of using explosives and NKVD operatives. On February 26, 1945, a meeting of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CP(b)U was held in Kyiv, where they adopted a resolution that largely determined the further actions of the Soviet security forces in the fight against the nationalist underground in Ukraine. The Central Committee of the Communist Party (b) of Ukraine ordered the creation of special, mobile combat detachments, with the inclusion of well-trained intelligence officers, operational, party and Soviet workers. The detachment was provided with undercover data, means of communication, and was not burdened with rear. The unit was supposed to, having discovered the gang, pursue it until it was completely destroyed, regardless of the district and region.

The areas where OUN formations operated were divided into operational areas (within the administrative boundaries of the region), and those, in turn, into operational groups. Each group included, depending on the operational situation, a certain number of subdivisions and units of the explosives (squad, platoon, and rarely a company), and NKVD operatives. Also, mobile reserves were created in the troops (on vehicles, on carts, cavalry) in order to assist the task force when entering into battle with the gang and block the likely escape routes of the bandits. The main task of the raiding operational-military (or Chekist-military) groups was the rapid implementation of operational data from the internal affairs and state security agencies.

Such task forces proved to be an effective method of combating the Ukrainian bandit, nationalist underground. But for more successful work, there was not enough intelligence support. Reliable intelligence was needed to establish the exact location of the gangs, their numbers, weapons, leaders and possible escape routes. This was also pointed out by the People's Commissar of Internal Affairs of the USSR L.P. Beria:

"... to organize special intelligence and information work to prevent terrorist acts by the OUN, leaving not a single terrorist act against Soviet citizens undiscovered and unpunished."

Former OUN members in the fight against their past


Undercover work became a decisive factor in the fight against Ukrainian bandits and terrorists. Some of the operational sources were recruited among the local population, but their data were scarce. The peasants could report about the appearance of strangers in the village, about which of the fellow villagers maintains ties with the "forest", etc. However, they did not know the leaders, their plans, the composition of the gangs, their bases and weapons. Therefore, former members of nationalist organizations were involved in undercover work.

The fact is that, while taking a generally uncompromising position with regard to Bandera, the government of the Ukrainian SSR and the USSR, at the same time, repeatedly gave former collaborators, bandits the opportunity to return to civilian life. The authorities promised the OUN, who "sincerely and completely stop all struggle and hostile speeches against the Red Army and the Soviet government, complete forgiveness of their grave mistake, their past guilt before the Motherland."

Since 1944, repeated appeals of the Soviet authorities were issued, in which full forgiveness was guaranteed to everyone who would leave the nationalist gangs and return to peaceful work. Such appeals were broadcast on the radio, published in all regional and district newspapers in the western part of Ukraine, printed in mass circulation in the form of leaflets and posters, which were distributed in villages, hung out in public places. Also, leaflets were scattered from aircraft in forests where Bandera could be based.

The peacekeeping steps of the government, the mood of the local population, which longed for a peaceful life and saw the real fruits of the actions of the Soviet government (restored cities and villages, bridges and roads, schools and libraries, collective farms and enterprises, and many others), led to the fact that the "lads" massively knocked out of the forest to surrender to the "Soviets". The mobilized peasants surrendered whole kurens (battalion). Often, fellow villagers and close relatives helped to turn themselves in, informing the forest inmates that forgiveness really works.

According to the Department for Combating Banditry of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Ukrainian SSR, in the first year alone, more than 29 people turned themselves in. During the period from February 1944 to July 1946, over 52 thousand people took advantage of this opportunity. In total, over the entire period of confrontation between the Soviet government and the nationalist underground in Western Ukraine, over 77 thousand members of gangs and their accomplices took advantage of the amnesty. In addition, tens of thousands of people were detained during operations. Therefore, the Chekists had someone to involve in undercover activities.

It should also be noted that the “bloody” Stalinist regime, which, according to foreigners and homegrown Westerners, was supposed to shoot, hang, send to concentration camps everyone who came with a confession or was detained, was very humane in relation to former collaborators, bandits and murderers . Most of the Bandera people, who were simple peasants mobilized in the OUN-UPA through brutal terror, under the threat of the death of their families and close relatives, after an appropriate check, were simply allowed to go home to restore the destroyed economy. Naturally, they were registered. In the conditions of the war in 1944 - early 1945, a part was drafted into the army.

The bulk of ordinary OUN members who were amnestied were of no interest to the state security agencies. First of all, they recruited the commanding leadership of the OUN-UPA. They were used for propaganda among the population, the decomposition of the remaining gangs, to identify lines of communication, underground shelters, etc. Things went on: in 1944, the agent apparatus in the region consisted of 725 agents, in 1945 - 1, in 200 - 1946 agents. Thanks to the information that was received from captured or surrendered "heroes", who sold their accomplices wholesale and retail, indicated the places of caches and bases, the operational-military groups carried out many successful operations.

Special groups of the NKVD


The leadership of the NKVD also used the repentant and surrendered Bandera not only as agents, but also created special-purpose groups from them, which were reinforced by experienced state security officers who knew the Galician dialect. They imitated the OUN-UPA units. Special squads went to the forest, lived in caches and came into contact with real bandits. The use of such special groups has shown their high efficiency. The remaining bandits were destroyed and captured, including leaders, messengers and accomplices. After the liquidation of the leaders, the remaining gangs often disintegrated. Weapons, ammunition, radio stations and documents were seized.

As the network of agents grew, operational groups and special groups successfully operated, nationalist personnel were destroyed and recruited, the OUN “bunker war” was lost. In 1950, UPA commander Roman Shukhevych, the closest associate of Stepan Bandera, was destroyed in a safe house (he was hiding abroad and was killed in 1959). The agony of the nationalist underground movement began. In 1954, the new commander of the UPA, Vasily Kuk (pseudonym Lemesh), was caught. Cook spent six years in prison and lived until 2007.

Georgy Sannikov, an employee of the KGB of the Ukrainian SSR, noted:

“Cook never came over to our side. Some consider him a KGB agent, but in fact he was not. And he made an appeal to his underground workers, because he understood: there is no point in fighting further, it is necessary to save personnel for the future Ukraine. It was a smart, seasoned enemy. A brilliant conspirator, so he lasted longer than all the leaders.

Unfinished anti-Russian project


Unfortunately, at that time in the USSR they did not understand that it was necessary to completely destroy the anti-Russian project "Ukraine" and return historical New Russia and Little Russia, Russian Galicia. Eliminate the concept of "brotherly Ukrainian people", "three East Slavic peoples", and return to the unity of the Russian superethnos.

"Russian great-power chauvinism" was not encouraged. And Ukrainian nationalism quite successfully “repainted” into communism and lived up to the “independence” of 1991. Former Bandera became members of the Communist Party, retaining the old ideology. For example, the future first president of Ukraine, Leonid Kravchuk, began his career as a young Banderist. It's funny and sad, but in Soviet Ukraine Kravchuk was largely responsible for the ideological sector.

There is an opinion that the nationalist structures (security service) had contacts with part of the Soviet leadership. In particular, Khrushchev. Therefore, the nationalists were not allowed to finish off. And after the death of Stalin, under the amnesty arranged by Khrushchev, many OUN-UPA activists were released. The Banderists returned to their homeland, and a measured restoration of militant Ukrainians began.

At first they "repainted" as communists, penetrated into the Komsomol, into the party and economic bodies. Already in the late USSR, the western regions of Ukraine were imbued with the spirit of Petliura-Banderaism. And during perestroika, a big abscess of “independence” ripened.

So, the project "Ukraine" has again become a toy of our Western "partners" in a big game against Russian civilization and people. Bandera, Shukhevych and other collaborators, Nazis, terrorists and bandits suddenly became "national heroes" of the new Ukraine. And the true heroes who fought for the people, their happiness, future and prosperous life, turned into "Stalin's executioners."

          Stalin was gone, they got rid of Beria and immediately the Union began to be ruined. The state was strong, 40 years had to be ruined. Then it, already broken into pieces, was robbed on the principle of scorched earth.
          And Russia is still on the world map. The potential, of course, of our state is bottomless.
          But it takes a long time to recover from 40 years of betrayal and 10 years of total robbery.

          Sudoplatov feigned insanity, only this saved him from immediate execution. He served 15 years. Released only under Brezhnev.

      Looking at today's Ukraine, the thought immediately comes to mind that comrade. Stalin and comrade. Sudoplatov did not quite complete their work!
      - And what does Stalin and Sudoplatov have to do with it?
      Pavel Anatolyevich Sudoplatov (July 7 [20], 1907, Melitopol - September 24, 1996, Moscow) - Soviet intelligence officer, employee of the OGPU, and later the NKVD - the NKGB; before his arrest in 1953 - Lieutenant General of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the USSR.
      Eliminated the head of the OUN Yevgeny Konovalets, organized the assassination of Leon Trotsky.
      During the Great Patriotic War, heading the 4th Directorate of the NKVD, he participated in organizing the mining of strategic facilities during the defense of Moscow, sabotage against the Nazi troops in the Caucasus, strategic radio games with German intelligence. Sudoplatov directly supervised the activities of Dmitry Medvedev's special-purpose partisan detachment in Western Ukraine occupied by German troops, which was the base for the legendary intelligence officer Nikolai Kuznetsov, and also headed the department that processed information about the development of the atomic bomb in the United States.
      After Stalin's death, the Trotskyist Nikita the Wonderworker set out to eliminate Bolshevism as an ideological movement. In the struggle for his power, Nikita liquidated L.P. Beria and many employees of the MGB. Thus began the preparations for the infamous XX Congress of the CPSU, which ended with the degeneration of the top of the CPSU into traitors, Perestroika and the liquidation of the USSR. One of the directions for the implementation of this betrayal was the total rehabilitation of Bandera.
      As part of Khrushchev's "Thaw" in 1953, Sudoplatov was arrested and sentenced to death on false charges. Then the bald man relented, and the death penalty was commuted to 15 years in prison. Sudoplatov completely served his sentence and was rehabilitated only in 1992.
      Under Gorbi, Sudoplatov was remembered again. They wanted to use him to falsify the Katyn case. Sudoplatov was required to testify that the Poles had been shot by the NKVD. By order of Gorbi, the Senior Military Prosecutor of the Department of the Directorate of the GVP, sub. just. part-time hereditary Gestapo A.Yu. Yablokov. I quote Yablokov himself:
      ... As a token of gratitude for this, as I hoped, he could give testimony of interest to the investigation. Sudoplatov was asked questions about the involvement of both himself and his subordinates in the Katyn crime. He denied it ...

      Simply put, Yablokov hoped to force Sudoplatov to give the necessary "evidence" under the threat of reviewing his old cases. In case of refusal, he threatened to reclassify them as "murder under aggravating circumstances." Those. guaranteed him a “tower” for refusing to participate in a Russophobic show. The chief of the Gestapo, father Muller, is spinning in his grave with envy. What are you talking about 1937?! However, despite the real threat to life, Sudoplatov refused Yablokov.
      Then, instead of Sudoplatov, the former head of the UNKVD for the Kalinin region, D.S., was found. Tokarev. Unlike the lonely Sudoplatov, Tokarev had two adult daughters and complicated family relationships. Therefore, by threatening him and his family, the Gestapo man knocked out the necessary “testimony” from Tokarev. Put in a hopeless situation, Tokarev gave them, but this cunning fox (I sincerely respect him) took advantage of the elementary illiteracy of the fierce Russophobe Yablokov, and gave such testimony that put an end to this whole undertaking. But that's a completely different story.

      comes the idea that Comrade. Stalin and comrade. Sudoplatov did not quite complete their work

      This is not true. Tov. Stalin and comrade. Sudoplatov did their job correctly, completely and to the end, but the traitors who came to power in the USSR after Stalin's death betrayed what Stalin and Sudoplatov did. Khrushchev released bandits from prison and wrote off all their past sins. Sudoplatova rotted in the Vladimir Central, was released from prison in 1968 only after the removal of Khrushchev. I believe that if Khrushchev had not been removed, then Sudoplatov would have disappeared in prison ..

    I'm making a suggestion...
    Looking at the current columns of refugees from Mariupol and other settlements, you can hang posters along their route or scatter leaflets with photographs of Nazis and Vushniks of Ukraine wanted for committed crimes with helplines.
    There is a break in the souls of people now, and looking at the photos of the criminals, this will have an additional impact on understanding who is to blame for what is happening.
    It is necessary to improve the methods of information impact on the population of Ukraine.

      Need to improve methods of information influence on the population of Ukraine.

      An interesting point from the article:
      The peacekeeping steps of the government, the mood of the local population, which longed for a peaceful life and saw the real fruits of the actions of the Soviet government (restored cities and villages, bridges and roads, schools and libraries, collective farms and enterprises, and many more) , led to the fact that the "lads" were massively thrown out of the forest to surrender to the "Soviets".

      Will the population of Ukraine see something new, attractive for itself, in the replacement of Poroshenko, Kolomoisky, Akhmetov, Pinchuk, Novinsky and others. on Vekselberg, Usmanov, Abramovich, Deripaska, Potanin, etc., etc.?
      It is clear that neo-Nazism apologists with well-known names and a list of “righteous deeds” should be involved, but is Russia ready to restore the Russian world? Is it ready to unite the lands of Ukraine and Belarus? It is unlikely ... While I see how stubbornly overcoming the difficulties they themselves create, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus are cobbled together and fasten a single Union State ... Moreover, looking back at the infringement of the powers of sovereign structures are zealous and biased ...
      Does anyone see Alexander Grigoryevich as the head of the Union State? Or will he be able to explain the need for the Union State to have a Federation Council, consisting of members who have nothing to do with the subjects of the SG (regions)? Maybe the financial structures will be happy to welcome the NES headed not by the Bank of the Union, but by some incomprehensible Central Bank with openly hostile goals of existence (incurring annual losses)?
      Are the moneybags ready to sacrifice their fortunes, switch to a progressive personal income tax scale and create state structures in energy, transport, heavy industry, etc., according to the Soviet principle?
      =====
      Denazification and demilitarization are the only goals and objectives that are visible and accepted by the citizens of the Russian Federation (others too). Any sane person understands that it is impossible to live in an eternal war using the theories of the Nazis and national patriots as a cover, as a code of morality ... But what next?
      And the topic is serious and there is a lot of work to be done, the result of which will be either the revival of the Russian world, or its complete collapse ... But under all this in Russia, even an ideology has not been invented ...

      Khrushchev "good-natured" took pity and let everyone go. Although there were those who did not return to their native village, they knew what fellow villagers could do with them. That's why I say that the current ones will immediately run to the memory. So we need to give them to Poland. Let them deal with them. Yes, we will lose part of the land, but how many lives will be saved from their "revenge". But those in "Azov" and in other gangs should not be taken prisoner at all, as well as mercenaries. Otherwise, this infection will revive again.

    In a battle with Bandera, the commander of the 1st Ukrainian Front, N. Vatutin, was mortally wounded.

    As far as I remember, there was no battle, there was shelling of a passing group, not even a group, but a couple of cars.

    In the "war after the war" in 1945-1955, 25 thousand military men, NKVD soldiers and policemen died, 32 thousand people from among the Soviet party activists.
    Totally uninspiring numbers, but we have technology on our side NOW, from automated listening to drones.

    Leaflets and now in my opinion are of great importance. If they do not help, then Typhoon sleeping pills can be used, throwing positions and fortifications at them.
    In general, of course, we need a system to combat Ukrainian nationalism and fascism.
    Now these are autonomous surveillance systems, cell phone tracking, agents, payment for information, total control over movement around the country.
    I would call the system "Northern Wind". Valid for at least 15-20 years. soldier

      Ugums, "pressed" region. And the counter-terrorist operation with the universal education of the younger generation in the right way, starting from kindergarten. And so for at least 20 years. But the problem arises of where to get the same educators and primary school teachers, and how to ensure their safety. In the article, the figure is 32 thousand dead PEACEFUL citizens, specialists, and more of them died than those who fought with Bandera with weapons in their hands. Although I believe that the figure is underestimated, it did not take into account those whom Bandera killed in the villages on suspicion of "collaboration with the Muscovites."

    I agree with Samsonov. But I will give a simple example from my own life. 1981 - 82, May 9. Location - Magadan region. Olsky district. p. Balagannoe - our club, where our front-line soldiers gathered - inmates. "Stalin's terrible Redhead" after the Victory "thrown into the GULAG camps" - that's what all the lebiroids write! Although EVERYTHING! three said that it was not just that the USSR threw a term on them. Of course, without going into the details of their affairs (convict's law). Sorry - it's hard for an ordinary driver to push thoughts in print. One of them always said "... they deprived us of medals - well, okay. We have them on the skin..." sitting in the locker room of our public bath. And I saw them - in front (ALL!!! Three) a star - behind a huge, incomprehensible scar for an 8-year-old boy. Not even just as he wrote - a scar - some kind, there are no printed words - kirdyk. OK . And we got Kolontai - a policeman. From 1941 to 1945 he served in western Belarus. The MGB accepted this in 1947, stuck 25 and without the right to leave the Kolyma. Eternal settlement - it was clear for what! And now - this ok, passing by our gatherings at the club with veterans, slows down and gives out - "pour me three axes for May 9" - not for the Victory !!! Just for May 9th. We have already brought the grandparents their order - three vodkas at 6.20 and three bombs 777. And this one, after drinking a big-mouthed muttering, gives out - "I didn’t () handed you over to the commandant's office at 41 !!!!!!" m breaks the glass from which he drank. Then the three of us saw something from something, but in 1995 I found out that the MTR was doing this, it was already in 1974. I spread all this talk in order to have an idea that it is not so easy to "denify" Ukraine, they have THIS forever.

    Good article, short and to the point.
    Often, fellow villagers and close relatives helped to turn themselves in, informing the forest inmates that forgiveness really works.

    Khrushchev's amnesty led Bandera out of the forest. On the one hand, pressing with the old methods is not very effective without agents, but it was weak with it. On the other hand, "dragon's teeth" were sown, which sprouted in 1990, and in 2014 they simply began to sprout. Here is where you think about what to do. And Chechnya immediately comes to mind. There would be no "sprouts" there.

      The Russian Federation will definitely weaken, if the USSR had not collapsed, nothing would have happened, alas, but this is always the case. Especially if there are those who still personally remember what the arrival of Soviet power was for them, when from respected wealthy owners they became impoverished collective farmers. Then, of course, they rose again, but the peasants never forgive the seized property and never give a damn about objective reasons.

    Simply put, Yablokov hoped to force Sudoplatov to give the necessary "evidence" under the threat of reviewing his old cases.

    I had to communicate with people who lived in Moldova, Armenia, NKAR, Ukraine at the time of the collapse of the USSR. According to them, the collapse was controlled by the KGB and the Special Departments in the Soviet Army. In Nagorno-Karabakh, close relatives were warned about the danger of participating in hostilities to separate Karabakh, but they did not interfere in any way with carrying out any activity. In Eastern Ukraine, special forces blocked all officers and prevented attempts to arm themselves and go out with weapons to Russia or withdraw equipment. In Moldova, the KGB created false Popular Fronts or committees for the defense of the USSR, and as a result, the most odious nationalists passed through these organizations in the elections. In the end, it was the special operations forces of the USSR in 1991 that sabotaged the actions to protect the USSR in Moscow and Leningrad, and in 1993 they organized and decisively suppressed the Resistance to the junta of Gaidar, Yeltsin, Chubais and Korzhakov.

    svp67 (Sergey), dear, there are weapons, but laziness mother overcame the employees of the archives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the FSB of the Russian Federation, plus they are waiting for instructions, from the very top, on declassifying documents from the times of the USSR. Many times and on "VO." I expressed the idea that it was time for the nationalists to declassify all the archives of the internal affairs and security agencies until 1991 and release them in huge print runs, on websites, and on Channel 1 (Vanechka Urgant does not sell everything with his face along with Pozner). That's when we will find out why dozens of natives of Stanislav and Lvov, Rivne and Vinnitsa regions were sent or exiled to Arkhangelsk and my native Arkhangelsk region (how young Kravchuk carried bread and lard in caches, or handed over the place of the cache to the NKVD soldiers and they were expelled from the village to save fellow villagers from revenge), we learn why dozens of Yagrinlag inmates were sent to a penal camp in the delta of the Solza River to build a UZhD to the village of Nenoksa, who did not want to build residential buildings in what was then Molotovsk (today Severodvinsk), all come from under Tallinn and Tartu, who served in the SS units. At the same time, we clearly learn that, having been released and returning to their small homeland, they became ardent fighters against the USSR, but did not lose touch with the operas, because in the archives of the Arkhangelsk region there are their cooperation subscriptions, messages and receipts for receiving money and material values. And most importantly, their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will find out that their hero was still at home working for the NKVD and the MGB, continued this in exile or in the camp, he did not forget this and returned to his small homeland or moved to Canada, Sweden or Finland (yes and how to forget, some of the documents were written by their pens, it will not be difficult for graphologists if the grandchildren require a handwriting examination).
