The report says that in 1959, after the agency network had been reorganized, agents and trustworthy people were employed for intelligence and counterintelligence investigations in search of state criminals and so on. Investigations carried out by the agency can be considered as operative investigations. This is a form of operative activities, the aim of which is to establish whether the person being checked has really committed a state crime or was only getting ready to commit one. Often it started only after enough factual material had been collected, which allowed the KGB to suspect that an actual person or a group of people carried out subversive activities against the USSR. The facts were, however, to be checked by agency-operative means. The work carried out is described in the report. The so-called “PK” was the checking of the correspondence of the individual under surveillance. In 1960, the agents’ work was reorganized into the Kapsukas district. Agents with little education, those who showed no wish to collaborate and who could not provide information, were removed. New ones were recruited. People with anti-Soviet inclinations were publicly condemned in the press and in work collectives, and preventive measures were taken against them.
