Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti
(Committee for State Security)
The Russian intelligence agency, similar to America's CIA.
"Vladimir Putin seems like an ok guy, but some worry because he's ex-KGB."
The all-powerful intelligence and security service of the U.S.S.R. during the Cold War. Ultimate successor to Cheka. Disbanded into the SVR and the FSB in 1991.
The Cheka were one of the many forerunners of the KGB.
The KGB were simply the Russian Secret Police. Pronounced "Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti." In Russian it means "Committee for State Security."
The KGB acted as:
-The Soviet internal security.
-The Soviet intelligence agnecy.
-And the Soviet secret police.
They came into formation in 1954, and died when the chairman, Vladimir Kryuchkov tried to overthrow president Gorbachev.
They were tough, ruthless, and badass. Using torture and execution to solve the Soviet Unions problems.
My grandfather was an officer of the KGB.
