Active Measures (Russian: Активные мероприятия aka) were a form of political warfare conducted by the Soviet security services (Cheka, OGPU, NKVD, KGB) to influence the course of world events, “in addition to collecting intelligence and producing politically correct assessment of it”. Active measures ranged “from media manipulations to special actions involving various degrees of violence”. They were used both abroad and domestically.
They included disinformation, propaganda, counterfeiting official documents, assassinations, and political repression, such as penetration in churches, and persecution of political dissidents. Active measures included the establishment and support of international front organizations (like the World Peace Council); foreign communist, socialist and opposition parties; wars of national liberation in the Third World; and underground, revolutionary, insurgency, criminal, and terrorist groups.
The intelligence agencies of Eastern Bloc states also contributed to the program, providing operatives and intelligence for assassinations and other types of covert operations. Retired KGB Maj. Gen. Oleg Kalugin described active measures as “the heart and soul of Soviet intelligence”: “Not intelligence collection, but subversion: active measures to weaken the West, to drive wedges in the Western community alliances of all sorts, particularly NATO, to sow discord among allies, to weaken the United States in the eyes of the people of Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and then to prepare the ground in case the war really occurs.”
Active measures were a system of special courses taught in the Andropov Institute of KGB situated at SVR headquarters in Yasenevo, near Moscow. The head of “active measures department” was Yuri Modin, former controller of the Cambridge Five spy ring.
Next, are the lists of operations. See if history is repeating itself in your opinion. Operation Trust was a counterintelligence operation of the State Political Directorate of the Soviet Union. The operation, which ran from 1921–1926, set up a fake anti-Bolshevik resistance organization, “Monarchist Union of Central Russia”, in order to help the intelligence service, identify real monarchists and anti-Bolsheviks.
The head of the Monarchist Union of Central Russia was Alexander Yakushev, a former bureaucrat of Ministry of Communications of Imperial Russia, who after the Russian Revolution joined the Narkomat of External Trade, when the Soviets had to allow the former specialists (called “spetsy”) to take positions of their expertise.
This position allowed him to travel abroad and contact Russian emigrants. Monarchist Union of Central Russia kept the monarchist general Alexander Kutepov from active actions, as he was convinced to wait for the development of internal anti-Bolshevik forces.
Kutepov originally believed terrorist action was necessary to defeat the Bolsheviks and formed the “combat organization,” a militant splinter from the Russian Armed Services Union led by General Baron Wrangel. Kutepov also created the Inner Line as a counter intelligence organization to prevent Bolshevik penetrations. It caused the Cheka some problems, but obviously was not overly successful.
Among the successes of Trust was the luring of Boris Savinkov and Sidney Reilly into the Soviet Union to be arrested and executed. Some modern researchers say that there are reasons to believe that both persons had doubts in Monarchist Union of Central Russia, and they went into the Soviet Union for their own reasons, using Monarchist Union of Central Russia as a pretext.
The Soviets did not organize Trust from scratch. The White Army had left sleeper agents and there were also Royalist Russians who did not leave after the Civil War. These people cooperated to the point of having a loose organizational structure. When the Bolshevik intelligence agencies discovered them, they did not liquidate them, but expanded the organization for their own use.
Still another episode of the operation was an “illegal” trip (in fact, monitored by the Bolshevik intelligence) of a notable emigree Vasily Shul-gin into the Soviet Union. After his return he published a book “Three Capitals” with his impressions. In the book he wrote, in part, that contrary to his expectations, Russia was reviving, and the Bolsheviks would probably be removed from power. Hmmmm... wonder where we’re hearing of such things today?
The one Western historian who had limited access to the TREST files aka TRUST files, John Costello, reported that they comprised thirty-seven volumes and were such a bewildering welter of double-agents, changed code names, and interlocking deception operations with “the complexity of a symphonic score,” that Russian historians from the Intelligence Service had difficulty separating fact from fantasy. In 1967 a Soviet adventure TV sequel, Operation Trust was created.
Next, we have Operation TOUCAN. This was a KGB/DGI public relations and disinformation campaign directed at the military government of Chile led by Augusto Pinochet. According to former KGB officer Vasili Mitrokhin, the plot was originally conceived by Yuri Andropov. The plot's twofold task was to organize sympathetic human rights activists to pressure the United Nations and generate negative press for the Pinochet regime.
In 1976, at the start of TOUCAN, the New York Times published 66 articles on Chile’s human rights record and four on Cambodia’s Khmer Khamaer Regime and only 3 such articles on the human rights situation in Cuba. As part of operation TOUCAN, the KGB also forged a letter tying the CIA to an assassination campaign by Chile’s secret police; DINA and many journalists.
Operation: INFEKTION was a KGB disinformation campaign to spread information that the United States invented HIV/AIDS as part of a biological weapons research project at Fort Detrick, Maryland. The Soviet Union used it to undermine the United States’ credibility, foster anti-Americanism, isolate America abroad, and create tensions between host countries and the U.S. over the presence of American military bases (which were often portrayed as the cause of AIDS outbreaks in local populations).
According to U.S. State Department analysts, another reason the Soviet Union “promoted the AIDS disinformation may have been its attempt to distract international attention away from its own offensive biological warfare program, which [was monitored] for decades”–in addition to anthrax, the Soviets were believed to have developed tularemia, the plague, and cholera for biological warfare purposes, as well as botulinum toxin, enterotoxins, and mycotoxins.
An alternative explanation is that the operation may have been in retaliation for American accusations that the Soviets used chemical weapons in South East Asia, later dubbed the yellow rain incident. However, my personal opinion is there is a bit of truth in all stories.
The question is how much? I’m more convinced these bioweapons have been an ongoing spawn from demonic elite global controllers for a long time. If my suspicion is correct, it is plausible each country would be pointing their fingers at one another erroneously. The US Army Field Manual 30-31B is an alleged classified appendix to a US Army Field Manual that describes top-secret counter insurgency tactics.
In particular, it identifies a strategy of tension involving violent attacks which are then blamed on radical left-wing groups in order to convince allied governments of the need for counter-action. It has been called the Westmoreland Field Manual because it is signed with the alleged signature of General William Westmoreland. (Today, the violent attacks are staged to be blamed on right-wing groups.) Of course, the U.S. government describes the document as a forgery. The next questionable operation is Operation Neptune.
In 1964, as part of Operation Neptune, the Czech intelligence apparatus publicly claimed to have discovered Nazi-era intelligence files hidden beneath the surface of Black Lake. The claim was false. It was a Soviet deception operation. It was the largest disinformation operation of the Czech intelligence apparatus. In 1964, at the bottom of Devil's Lake in the Šumava as if by chance were found boxes of secret documents that were stored since World War II.
These papers were to serve as proof that in the West, among the dignitaries, was a lot of informants by the Gestapo and war criminals. The supposed find was alleged to reveal the names of a large number of spies controlled by the Nazi Germany in Eastern Europe.
Fearing that portions of their intelligence network might be compromised; the West Germans were forced to cease working with agents they “inherited” from the Nazi regime. At the time, they even managed to worsen relations between Germany and Italy, as had been published the names of people who lived in Germany during the war worked against Italy. Operation Proba (KGB) Commander Anthony Tosswill Courtney, was a British Royal Navy officer and politician.
While a Member of Parliament, he was a victim of a plot apparently instituted by the KGB to discredit him, which appeared to contribute to the loss of his seat. He was a leading member of the Conservative Monday Club. Operation Berezino was a secret deception operation performed by the Russian Soviet Socialist police force against the Nazi secret services in August 1944 – May 1945.
It was proposed by Joseph Stalin, drafted by Mikhail Maklyarsky and executed by Pavel Sudoplatov and his Russian Soviet Socialist police force subordinates assisted by ethnic German antifascists and communists. The main objective of Operation Berezino was to create an illusion of a large German armed group operating behind the front line in Russian held territory, and to deplete Nazi intelligence resources through capture and extermination of their field operatives sent to assist these nonexistent troops.
The Russian Soviet Socialist police force set up a fake German “resistance pocket” under “command” of lieutenant-colonel Heinrich Scherhorn, a real German prisoner of war forced to cooperate with the Soviets. The German response, Otto Skorzeny's Operation Freischütz developed according to Soviet expectations. The German commandos sent by Skorzeny were routinely arrested and forced to take part in the Soviet controlled information from the turned agent.
(This is very reminiscent of January 6 and the DC Gitmo prisoners.) German support gradually faded, but the German command-maintained radio contact with “Group Scherhorn” until May 1945. The Tagantsev conspiracy (or the case of Petrograd Military Organization) was a non-existent monarchist conspiracy fabricated by the Soviet secret police in 1921 to terrorize intellectuals who might be in a potential opposition to the Bolshevik regime.
