Posted on 11/04/2018 1:43:51 PM PST by gandalftb
Last year and earlier this year, The Interpreter published a series of four articles in the Daily Beast on hitherto secret KGB training manuals.
Now all (eight of) these manuals (are) available to be downloaded in the Russian original, and also providing some translations of the table of contents and notes and summary translations of the contents for four of the manuals not previously covered.
The still-classified manuals expose the devious methods of the Soviet Unions secret police not only to surveil but suborn their own citizens and foreigners in a vast project to extend the Kremlins power around the world.
These internal documents from the 1970s and 1980s were used in an era before the Internet and mass electronic surveillance.
Yet what is most intriguing about them is that these same methods are still used today and now amplified with new technology.

This, for the 100th anniversary celebration of the founding of RU (later GRU until 2010) by Trotsky 11/5/1918.
What a better way to celebrate, than to offer a little sunshine on the KGB (Russian secret service).
I saw it on one of the torrent sites. Then again, so was the complete US Special Forces training manuals including the Sniper one...
Torrent has the first 4 out of 8 manuals. I believe this is the first open source on the last 4, and the first I have seen of the original Russian docs.
I bet the KGB has some very interesting pictures and video of him cavorting with Russian hookers and underaged girls...and boys.
if you could read Russian..worth getting for umm, academic purposes. Now that FR condones downloading torrent stuff (whistling)
I have a liberal friend who listened in on the Russians during his time in the Navy. I'll sent him a link but I doubt he'll look at it very closely.
if your friend is a lib, he’ll look into it..
Not to worry!
Our magnificent intelligence agencies are on the job...None of those dirty old and successful techniques and patriotic loyalties for us...
Our intels have:
Now its the FSB - the Federal Security Service headquartered in the same building that formerly housed the KGB.
Regarding the GRU, I worked with a guy in the 1990s who was a former senior lieutenant in the GRU. Something he managed because of family connections - working at a listening station in Armenia kept him out of Afghanistan. While there he got caught by his CO dubbing an ABBA cassette on the GRU's Sony dubbing cassette decks. He spent the rest of his military career dubbing ABBA and various other western pop groups for sale on the black market. This affirmed my suspicion about "Intelligence" agencies generally.
KGB Training Manual
Lesson 1: Always be on lookout for Moose and Squirrel.
The manual was also known as Howard Zinn’s US history book ;)
Is Brennan credited for some of the content?
An Armenian who was once in Siberia told me that her brother was suddenly befriended by a girl - I mean a beautiful girl when the Soviet government wanted him to decide not to emigrate even tho his parents had emigrated and he was slated to go to the US as well. So, in the communist system, "alls fair."
KGB training manual?
or CNN employee handbook?
Can you really tell the difference?
Larry, I think you’ll appreciate this post by InABunkerUnderSF
Yep, blue jeans and rock-n-roll brought down the Soviet Union. (Well, with a little help from Ronald Reagan...)
Speaking of, I was living in Belgium ‘81-82 during Reagan’s first term. There were anti-nuke protests all the time and all over the place, KGB propaganda films (such as Voici l’Amerique), and general hatred for America among the Belges, much like that thrown at Trump today.
Amazingly, the Cold War Deep State didn’t recognize the seismic shift in attitudes of normal people in Belgium, and, I assume, across Europe: they loved John Wayne, they loved Chuck Berry, and they loved Ronald Reagan.
THAT’s how the Cold War was won.
I have a feeling that something big is going to come from the meeting between Trump and Putin on the 11th. Just a feeling.
