Russian KGB Records

Soviet / Russian secret police files

During the Soviet period in Russia, millions of people were arrested, exiled and executed. Most of these arrests, exiles and executions took place during Stalin's repression of the 1930s. An overwhelming majority of those repressed were not guilty of any crime. The OGPU-NKVD* compiled false "proof" of crimes using legal and illegal methods.
