The repressions that swept around the country at the end of the 1930s dealt a heavy blow to Soviet foreign intelligence, undermining the success of previous years. Not only were heads of foreign intelligence affected by the arrests, but also many leading intelligence officers. This resulted in the abolishment of almost all illegal residences and lost connections with extremely valuable sources of information, which affect national security to a very seriously degree.
The book describes the most prominent intelligence officers who became victims of the repression. The Annex provides a short biographical description of their colleagues who were also victims of the ‘Great Terror’.
