Order: kill Comrade Stalin

44
At the beginning of 1944, the SD began preparing a subversive group, the purpose of which was to kill Stalin. The duel of the special services began: Zeppelin against SMERSH.


Special flight

On the night of 4 on 5 of September, 1944 of the year, the 4's Arado 232 motor plane took off from the Riga airfield. Specially equipped aircraft had navigation equipment that allowed it to fly at night and in any weather. Thanks to 12 couples carrying rubber-covered landing gear, the aircraft could land on small-sized platforms, in a meadow, and even on tillage. Wooden blades of propellers, mufflers on motors, black matte hull coloring, flame arresters made it barely noticeable at night. The plane was piloted by the most experienced Luftwaffe pilots who were part of the KG-200 air group. The crew commander received a cross from the hands of Goering himself. Pilots "KG-200" carried out the entry into the territory of the USSR of terrorists and saboteurs, therefore, when captured, they could not count on the status of prisoners of war. In the plane itself, besides the crew, there was a passenger 2 - a man in the form of a major and a woman with shoulder straps of a junior lieutenant. These were the agents of the intelligence and sabotage organization SD "Zeppelin" Peter Tavrin and Lydia Shilova. They flew to Moscow with the mission to kill Stalin.

Order: kill Comrade Stalin


Miracle-weapon and miracle operations

As the Nazi troops retreated to the west, they hoped for the Wehrmacht as the main means of achieving victory. Increasingly, the favorable outcome of the war was associated with miraculous weapons; increasingly, in the depths of the intelligence services of the Third Reich, projects of operations were created, designed to stop the wheel stories and make it spin backwards. After the failure of Operation Big Jump (the murder of Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill during the Tehran Conference in 1943), Zeppelin began the preparation of a new operation involving the murder of Stalin directly in Moscow. The attempted assassination and murder was to be carried out by the former lieutenant of the Red Army, Peter Tavrin, aka Shilo, aka Politov.



Super agent Peter Tavrin

Peter Tavrin went over to the side of the enemy in May 1942. Even before the war, he changed his surname twice, for a long time he lived on forged documents, each time managing to legalize and even occupy leadership positions. It was this incredible resourcefulness that set him apart from the mass of defectors, who offered their services to the Nazis. Having passed the test of "professional suitability" and loyalty as a provocateur in prisoner of war camps, Tavrin in 1943 year becomes a cadet of a reconnaissance school. Very soon, from the category of “one-time agents”, who are not even supposed to return back after completing the assignment, he goes into the cohort of “valuable”, and in August 43 is introduced into the group of 23 agents prepared for especially important tasks.

In January, 1944, Tavrin was informed about the essence of the mission entrusted to him, with him the saboteur of the 3rd Reich No. XXUMX, Otto Skorzeny, meets three times, who approves the nominated candidate. The individual preparation of the future super saboteur begins. By the end of the summer of 1, all the preparatory stages of the operation have been completed, Tavrin is just waiting for an order for departure.



Superspy outfit

The saboteur is supplied with documents addressed to Tavrin Pyotr Ivanovich, the deputy head of the counterintelligence department SMERSH of the 39 Army I of the Baltic Front. For legalization in Moscow, he has a spare set of documents for an officer who arrived from the hospital for treatment. In order to confirm the legend, he is undergoing several plastic surgeries that imitate the marks of heavy wounds on his body. The saboteur's chest is adorned with the orders shot from the killed officers, medals and even the real star of the Hero of the Soviet Union. In the field bag invested newspapers with decrees on awards, where, among others, mentioned the name Tavrin. To carry out the terrorist act, the saboteur is equipped with pistols with explosive and poisonous bullets and a radio-controlled explosive device mounted in a briefcase. There is also a miniature Panzernak grenade launcher, whose 30mm projectile penetrates 300-35mm armor at a distance of 40 meters. The Panzerknak is fastened with straps on the arm and actuated by a push-button device. A special leather raincoat with an extended right sleeve is sewn for the promotion. The previously thrown out group is preparing the site for the aircraft, and in Moscow Tavrina will be supported by the underground organization “Union of Russian Officers”, which will provide it with necessary information and provide a guest ticket to the Kremlin for the solemn meeting of 6 in November on the anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution, where it is planned carrying out the attack.



On what the super-saboteur "punctured"

From the very beginning, things did not go as planned. "Arado 232" was discovered and fired upon. The damaged aircraft turned to the west, but did not reach the front line and was forced to make an emergency landing in the Smolensk region. The pilots helped the saboteurs roll out the motorcycle, after which they dispersed in different directions: the aircraft crew went to the west, Tavrin and Shilova went to the east. The pilots were caught on September 9 and, as members of the KG-200 squadron, were shot.

At around 6 in the morning of September 5, near the village of Karmanovo, on the Moscow-Rzhev highway, a group of NKVD-NKGB, commanded by Senior Lieutenant Vetrova, stopped a motorcycle, on which two servicemen were driving, a man and a woman. They were in a hurry, but neither the documents of the major, nor the certificate of the counterintelligence officer SMERSH, nor the telegram of an urgent call to Moscow, nor the golden star of the Hero had an adequate effect on the senior lieutenant. The fate of the saboteurs was decided at that moment, as soon as Tavrin opened his leather coat to get the documents. The Order of the Red Star "combat major" wore on the left side of the chest, which was a gross violation of order number XXUMX of 240 year. During the search of the motorcycle, weapons, ammunition, mines, blank forms of various certificates, more than a hundred seals of Soviet institutions and organizations and other sabotage equipment were found. An urgent request to Moscow did not confirm service in the counterintelligence organs of Major Tavrin. The detainees admitted that they were German agents and immediately agreed to cooperate.



Operation "Fog"

On September 27, the first radiogram went to Berlin, informing that the saboteurs had reached Moscow and started to fulfill the task. The radio game started, which remained in the archives as “Operation“ Fog ”. In the Tavrin radiograms compiled by the Chekists, the administration reported in detail about its successes that with each passing day he was getting closer and closer to fulfilling the goal of his task - the murder of Stalin. Lidia Shilova sent the last radiogram to Berlin 9 on April 1945, in which Tavrin assured Zeppelin of her loyalty to the Führer and reported that the execution of the attack was a matter of several days. The radiogram remained unanswered. Reich III remained less than a month, he was no longer up to them.



Accident? No, the pattern!

The seeming failure of such a well-conceived operation was by no means accidental. The sabotage group that had just been loading aboard the Arado 232 was already doomed. In the fall of 1943, a radiogram went to Moscow with a verbal portrait of a superspy being prepared for a secret mission. The leather coat under the “pancernack” with an extended sleeve has not yet been sewn, and in Moscow we have already received news of a strange order in the special equipment. The Soviet counterintelligence learned about the arrival of a strange aircraft in Riga on the same day when the Arado 232 chassis touched the plates of the Riga airfield. 5 September 1944 of the year in 1 hour 40 minutes the aerial surveillance service reported on the front line crossing by plane, in 3 hours in which area it landed. At 4 hours, a resident of the village of Almazovo reported about the motorcycle riders who asked her the way to Rzhev. It was not by chance that the group of Senior Lieutenant Vetrov was on the way of Tavrin and Shilova. More than 150 people at that moment were standing on the roads, having cordoned off the area where the aircraft fell. In the place of the planned landing of the plane, the saboteurs would have been met not by Zeppelin employees, but by the KGB. The previously thrown out group was neutralized long ago, and the Union of Russian Officers, supported by Zeppelin so much, existed only on paper, it was another pseudo-organization created by the NKGB. So the Order of the Red Star, worn by Tavrin on the left side of the chest, this annoying absurdity, absolutely did not solve anything. The hard work of the Soviet special services was more effective than the activities of the Abwehr and the Zeppelin, who preferred impromptu.

Point

For several years, counterintelligence officers were waiting for someone from the remaining German agents or representatives of foreign special services to enter the Tavrin-Shilova group. At the beginning of the 1952 of the year, after long vain expectations, it was decided to complete Operation Fog. Two execution sentences against Tavrin and Shilova put an end to the protracted history. "Fog" dissipated.

      Well, do not forget that it was Stalin who directed the actions of the army, so who knows how it would have happened if he had been killed. Maybe the new leader would have been mistaken in something and this would have given the Germans a chance to postpone the defeat, etc. You say so, as if the identity of the leader by military operations does not solve anything

      I read this version. In the event of Stalin's death, the leaders of the 3rd Reich hoped for more or less honorable conditions for surrender (no one doubted the outcome of the war) and the preservation of life, and possibly avoiding persecution, and the intelligence leaders hoped that their professionalism and intelligence network Allied intelligence will appreciate and after the war they will give work. There is a wonderful series of books about SMERSH (SMERSH in battle like). There, this story is covered in great detail.

      Most of this story, in terms of the objectives of the operation, is undoubtedly an invention. It is very doubtful that Skorzeny is so much that he hoped to kill Stalin. The murder of members of the highest command, no more. It’s just after the exposure in order to give importance to the saboteurs that the Stalin’s murder was entangled, which they undoubtedly admitted, including.

      It is rightly said that if GB is not visible, then this does not mean at all that it is not being conducted. Still, it’s not a public structure, and often it becomes known about the operations carried out in fifty years. The same applies to the subject, by the way.

    And the case of a shortage of the aircraft due to the landing point of the group, slightly restructured counterintelligence plans.
    But otherwise it was. In any case, according to the few documents that reached publicity.
    And the fact that the “Hans" had problems with forging documents, making medals, orders is the same fact.

I, the longer I live, the less inclined to believe in coincidence. All of the persons you listed came to power under Andropov's connivance, the toothlessness of the KGB allowed the 5 column to strengthen in the USSR and develop its activities. The result of this subtle mnogoghodovka - we sadly lived for a whole quarter of a century. Destruction from the inside of the USSR, withdrawal into the foreign political scene and the "near" abroad, the threat of the destruction of Russia itself, the impoverishment of the population "wanting" capitalism, the stoppage of many systemically important industries and agriculture, the change of vector in education ..... I do not believe in coincidence, I am sure that the destruction of the USSR was covered precisely from the KGB, and then when the process started it was already being adjusted in the right direction but NOT BURNED out - and this is the main "coincidence". A strong power machine was prevented by voices from abroad, it would be ridiculous if not for the sad consequences of weakness.

    The bet on the “weapon of retaliation”, the preparation of an attempt on the leaders of the states of the anti-Hitler coalition, are the dying convulsions of the Hitler regime. They could not influence the course of the war. We must pay tribute to the officers SMERSHA they worked great. In general, SMERSH outplayed Abwehr Germany. All attempts by German intelligence to create an extensive reconnaissance and sabotage network in the USSR failed miserably. The Red Army counterintelligence was stronger.

    This whole story is undoubtedly more distorted towards simplification. Let's start with the personality of Tavrin. No matter how crooked Tavrin really is and no matter how hard they try to present him as a natural scoundrel, he is clearly not an ordinary person. Growing up from a “one-time” saboteur whom Skorzeny trusts was clearly not easy. Tavrin probably had several casts behind the rear with tasks that he successfully completed, moreover he was able to cross the front line back. And most importantly, after returning, he passed all the checks and did not arouse any suspicion among the Germans. The fact that he was caught without a shootout is an indicator of how professionally counterintelligence has grown over the years of the war. In general, the history of German intelligence is not written by anyone, but it is known that until 1944. the Germans quickly revealed the location of our troops, forces, weapons, the direction of the main strikes, even down to the data of unit commanders. And if the radio intelligence and air reconnaissance can be fooled, it is difficult to hide from the enemy’s agents. The writer Bogomolov in The Moment of Truth made a strong emphasis on how counterintelligence worked “earlier”, how saboteurs were eliminated on the spot and how important the radio game was, and that this is what the living “scabs” are for, because the dead don't talk .. The failure of saboteur Tavrin, a seasoned saboteur, is the result of undoubtedly the most complicated radio game and most likely the introduction of an agent into the intelligence school, but the orders are not mixed up in places. This damn thing is just ridiculous, like a Negro scout near Ryazan ... There is also no description of how they were taken realistically, because you had to take them alive without arousing any suspicion from them, and Tavrin and his partner obviously did not intend to give up alive, knowing perfectly well what is death. Those. the most interesting remained unknown and most perceive this as "Germans, and our fellows, they know how, by order of the award should be located" ...

    Then the state security worked as it should and the results yielded the necessary. But schA ... However, what kind of power, such and security.

    I must say that the people really helped counterintelligence with their vigilance. What can’t you say about the KGB?
