The management of the KGB was comprised of the chairman and three of his deputies. The first deputy, whose responsibility was the control of operational work, was being assigned from Moscow, and he was not a Lithuanian. The second one controlled political surveillance. The third one supervised cadres. The KGB Board is also attributable to the management, which consisted of the top management, the chiefs of the main management offices and divisions, and the chiefs of the security divisions of the biggest cities. It used to deal with major organisational issues, considered reports, and the projects for instructions and orders.
