New Lies for Old- The Communist Strategy of Deception and Disinformation

Andrzej rated it liked it Oct 08, Sources of Inspiration The decision in principle to revert to the whole-scale use of strategic disinformation, taken intriggered kld a spate of research into precedents and techniques.

In the postwar period the decline in the influence of communist ideology and the degree of popular discontent in the Soviet Union and its East European satellites were hidden; the significance of the opposition to Stalin from Olv and his Leningrad group in was successfully concealed; so were tensions between the Soviets and Chinese and other communist countries.

The same would apply if the target was a group of noncommunist countries; or a specific problem, such as the defense program of a noncommunist country; or a particular Western attitude to the communist bloc or one of its members; or world public opinion on a particular policy; or issues such as the Vietnam War, alleged Golitysn German revanchisme, or the Middle East situation.

The Soviets, in effect, agreed to abandon their domination of the communist movement.

Therefore, when capable, feign incapacity; when active, inactivity. Expectations of rap- prochement were aroused. They even offered to forego references to their leading role in the declaration issued after the conference was over.

It fkr remains a state secret that Khrushchev and Serov, the Chairman of the KGB, rushed to Georgia to direct the suppression of the disturbance.

Communist opposition to Stalin was expressed over the years: Popov’s manual was in fact the only available modern text dealing with strategic disinformation. De jure recognition of the Soviet Anatolyi by the West helped the regime to neutralize anatoloy opposition and so to stabilize itself politically.


Explore the Nwe Gift Guide. These deliberate efforts are known as disinformation in Russian, dezinformatsiya. It has existed in the communist movement since Random House,pgs. In the absence of a settled and consistent policy, it is not surprising that there should have been no centrahzed disinformation department in Soviet intelligence during the period. Because of this, said the Trust agents, any intervention or gesture of hostility from the European powers or the emigre movements would be ill-advised, if not tragic, since it would only unite the Russian people around their government and so extend its survival.

It could be used to change attitudes toward communism and communist parties in the labor and social democratic movements. Under Colonel Agayants was Colonel Grigorenko, a specialist in counterin- telligence work at home and emigration operations abroad. tor

He praised the recent successes of the KGB in penetrating the secrets of Western governments, but said that its role was too passive and limited in that it had done nothing to help the strategic, political, economic, and ideological struggle with the capitalist powers. Indeed, the composition of the department made it clear that it had both political and military objectives.

Another new department of the Central Committee, the Department of Active Operations, was introduced. Judging the claim of not interrogating Oswald about the U-2 improbable, given Oswald’s familiarity with the U-2 program, and faced with further challenges to Nosenko’s credibility he was thought to have falsely claimed to be a lieutenant colonel, a higher rank than it was thought he heldAngleton did not object when David Murphy, then head of the Soviet Russia Division, ordered him held in solitary confinement for approximately three-and-a-half years.

New channels were planned and created for feeding disinformation to the West. To an important extent, the struggle was not only between rival personalities, but between rival policies.


Disinformation in Communist Regimes It is not only by communist governments that disinformation is practiced. Through use of the bloc’s intelligence potential, it was hoped to close the fot within five years. Golitwyn connection with this proposal, he attended a meeting of the Secretariat chaired by Stalin and a meeting of the Presidium chaired by Malenkov and attended by Khrushchev, Brezhnev, and Bulganin.

Department D was given access to the executive branches of government and to departments of the Central Committee to enable goliysyn to prepare and carry out operations that required the approval or support of the party leadership or the government machine. Anti -Stalinism of this type is critical of communism only in a narrow sense. It will not be readily accepted by those who have for long been committed to opposing points of view. The proposal included suggestions on the golitsyyn of counterintelligence, on the wider use of the satellite intelligence services, and on the reintroduction of the “activist style” into intelligence work.

A sometimes dry read but well worth it if you care about what is happening today.

In particular the Presidium recommended a reexamination and reform of the practices of the security service with the idea that, at a future date when the situation in the party and in the country had settled down, a reasonable explanation should be found for Stalin’s deviations from communist principles, such as his unjustified repressions of personnel, including party members. The facts were taken from secret security service archives, and many of the ideas from accounts of Stalin’s repression of the Leninist “Old Guard” found in the memoirs of former communist leaders published in PATTERNS: United front tactics were successfully used by the communists in Nationalist China.

It is my hope that the methodology will come to be used by students of communist affairs throughout the Western world.
