Espionage in the international relations
In 1990 an emission of radio Soviet in Moscow holds the following reasoning (summarized):
“the KGB is harmful in the USSR!! For example, in Germany, there was the chancellor Willy Brandt who, by his Ostpolitik, tried to improve the relations of Germany with the USSR. Eh well the KGB put a spy to him, Gunther Guillaume, and that cost the post of chancellor Willy Brandt. And finally that harmed the international relations of the USSR. When one has a friend that is not made put a spy in the legs to him. The KGB is harmful in the USSR”.
This having been known as on the waves of the USSR, one year before the dissolution of the aforesaid the USSR.
