History of the Russian Secret Service
Angela Hunt, BA MA DELE MIR
Russian Secret Service under the Czars or under the Supreme Soviet is characterised by its obsession with the tactics of the agent provocateur. Its strength in modern times is perhaps best emphasized by pointing out how the Russian revolution of 1917 succeeded. Russia has always employed far more secret agents than any other power. Similarly, she has generally spent much more on intelligence than any other nation. The task of revealing in this course this history is made all the greater because the Russian espionage network is world-wide to an extent match only by the United States among the other great powers.
